Tomato-Mozzarella-Vidalia Onion Salad

This is one of the simplest and most delicious of salads. It is especially good in the summer when bright red tomatoes are juicy and flavorful.

The essential ingredient is good quality fresh, moist mozzarella. Good fresh cow’s milk mozzarella works just as well. Do not use the yellow plastic-wrapped supermarket variety!

Slice the mozzarella in moderate thickness and overlap on a plate with the tomato and onion slices. Then just before serving, drizzle with good quality extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with salt and fresh ground pepper. 

This salad should not sit in oil for any length of time as it will become soggy. Add the oil just before serving!

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
