Vidalia Onion, Tomato, and Basil Salad

1 Vidalia onion -- large
2 tomatoes -- large
1/2 pound mozzarella cheese, part skim milk -- sliced
6 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons wine vinegar
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves -- chopped
black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic -- finely minced
* Garlic is optional.

Slice the tomatoes and cheese into thick slices. Slice the Vidalia onion into thin slices; chill for best flavor. If Vidalias are not available substitute Walla Walla, Maui Sweet or Texas 1015.
On salad plates, arrange the tomatoes, onion and cheese in overlapping design.
In a large measuring cup combine the oil, vinegar, garlic and black pepper. Use a whisk to blend well. While still stirring, pour over the vegetables. Garnish with chopped basil. Serve immediately.
