  • Good quality buffalo mozzarella
  • Beef tomatoes on the vine
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Classic Balsamic
  • Basil Infused Olive Oil or another olive oil of your choice (any of ours will be delicious!)


  • Try to get the big blocks of mozzarella, and slice lengthways.
  • Using a heart shaped biscuit cutter (or go free hand for extra charm!) cut the slices into love hearts. Layer slices of tomato and mozzarella onto a serving plate along with loads of fresh basil leaves torn up or left whole.
  • Once nicely presented, glug over plenty of the olive oil and then the balsamic, and finish with plenty of salt and pepper.
  • As the perfect starter to woo a loved one.
