Caprese Salad

I have eaten too many poor versions of this in restaurants etc.  Perhaps my tastes are not developed enough but I need stronger flavors than a rubbery slice a cheese with a slice of tomato and a drop of balsamic.

4 medium tomatoes sliced 1/4" slices
8 oz Fresh Mozerella sliced
1/4 cup ev olive oil
3 Tbs balsamic vinegar
2 Tbs fresh basil chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 tsp salt
crushed rep pepper to taste
Black Pepper to taste

Alternate and overlap tomato and cheese slices
Mix remaining ingredients pour over tomato cover and rest for at least 3 hours

Serve over crostini as an appetizer or over fresh arugula as a salad adding some dressing to the plate
