Afternoon Delight - A Lunchtime Quicky #3

A quickies make me happy . . . no, not THAT . . .

NOMS!  That's what I'm talking about.

If you’re like me, you wake up in the morning barely able to throw together a cup of coffee.   On top of that you have to rouse your brain cells enough to try to come up with something to take to work for lunch.  Something better than a can of beefaroni, a bologna sandwich or ramen noodles.

It really doesn’t take much to put together a good healthy lunch.  Its even better if you can make something the night before that you can grab on your way out the door in the morning.
This is that something . . . and it is a perfect pairing of flavors that will have you looking at the clock, waiting for it to tic to noon.

For a refreshing, light lunch or snack that is guilt free and perfect in its simplicity there are few things that compare with the combination of a luscious ripe tomato with fresh mozzarella. 
Add a splash of good balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.  A sprinkling of fresh ground pepper, sea salt and a leaf of fresh basil.  That’s all it take for a refined dish that couldn’t be easier to prepare. 

For a little more substance, layer the ingredients on a slice of crunchy garlic toast.

For a little more pizzazz, add a slice of avocado or roasted garlic.
