Personal Notes:
So easy, so good, but best if you use high quality ingredients like extra first press olive oil and syrupy, good quality balsamic, not a run of the mill brand.

For a summer treat, use cherry tomatoes, and small fresh mozzarella balls and make skewers. Chop the basil and mix with salt pepper and oil and vinegar and drizzle over like shish kabobs.
