  • 1 large chorizo sausage
  • 4 balls of buffalo mozzarella
  • 4 beef tomatoes
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Method of Preparation:

  1. Remove the skin, if there is any, from the chorizo and finely slice it.

  2. Slice the mozzarella into slices about half a cm thick.

  3. Slice the beef tomatoes into slices about half a cm thick.

  4. Pick the largest basil leaves you can find from the stalks and give them a quick wash to pep them up.
