Celebration! Ripe Tomatoes!

There are few things better than a homegrown tomato. 
I basically boycott tomatoes all year long because those pale pink imposters sold at even the best of supermarkets are an insult to such a beautiful fruit.
The only problem, if any, is once they come, they come on strong.
So strong that you feel guilty not maximizing every meal with some sort of tomato based dish.

Here is one attractive, super simple, crowd satisfying appetizer that really honors and celebrates the tomato.

Recipe (if you can call it that...)
1 fresh, ripe garden tomato
fresh mozzarella
pesto (homemade or store bought)
balsamic reduction
Optional: Lemon zest or freshly squeezed lemon juice &/or freshly cracked pepper

Do you really need directions?!
