  • Gently rinse basil and pick leaves from stems. Set aside.
  • Select an appropriately sized platter and begin to assemble/layer tomatoes, cheese and the leaves of the basil. Starting from the rim of the platter and working your way toward the center; alternating tomatoes, cheese and basil until all of your ingredients are used up.
  • Gently drizzle your choice of either Bistro Blends Garlic Balsamic Bistro Oil or Bistro Blends Sun-Dried Tomato Balsamic Vinegar over all of the ingredients. The amount used is at your discretion. Although an ample amount to coat much of the entire platter is encouraged.
