Easy Panzanella Salad

Even with neglect somehow my garden still produced tomatoes this past summer. Plump romas and super sweet yellow heirlooms were ready to be picked daily. I also still have basil growing like a weed. My intention is to make some yummy pesto to freeze but in the meantime I have been cooking italian regularly. I decided to experiment with a panzanella salad considering the stale loaf of bread on the counter and the harvest from the garden. Here is what I came up with, easy and great with a simple spaghetti pomodoro.
Easy Panzanella Salad
A bunch of tomatoes sliced in half
Fresh Basil
Mozzarella pearls
Crusty bread torn into small pieces
Olive oil drizzled on top
