Caprese Salad using Plum Lemon aka Wonder Lights Tomatoes

I apologize in advance if this picture is still huge. I did try to re-size it before submitting but for whatever reason, I'm not seeing an edit function above so I tried editing it in photo bucket first. Still learning, bear with me.

My experience with this tomato, grown for the first time last year, was that it's somewhat hollow, which makes it great for stuffing. It's not a really large tomato but it works well for small bocconcini balls (fresh mozzarella). Cut tomatoes in half and scoop out seeds. Put a small fresh basil leaf in the bottom of the "tomato boat", followed by a half bocconcini ball (~2" sized ones work well). Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve as a first course. We grew Minette bush basil so we sprinkled the tiny leaves of that on top as well.
Grazie a tutti,
