Capresse Salad with Fresh Basil and Balsamic Vinaigrette

This is the Easiest and Most Beautiful Salad ! I made it for my Mother's 87th Birthday Celebration. It takes a bit of prep time.

6 pounds heirloom tomatoes, sliced thick
1 pound buffala mozzarella cheese, Sliced or Set in Center of Platter whole 
1 bunch fresh basil
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette
1 head washed leaf lettuce

Line a Large Platter with Leaf Lettuce or fig leaves
Slice tomatoes
Place Basil Leaves on top of Tomatoes
Sprinkle with Vinaigrette and Salt and Pepper
Let marinate for 30 minutes
Enjoy :)
