I cut the cheese into small pieces

and them cut them in half again so I’d have enough for all the tomatoes.

I tried cheese first, the basil, then tomato.

I couldn’t decide which way was better so I did some each way.

I made them ahead without dressing so there wouldn’t be extra wilting.

Before tucking them in the fridge I had to see if they were any good. They were. Four or five later I had to rearrange the plate so it didn’t look so empty on one side.
