Caprese Appitizer for New Year!

Happy New Year! I made this last night as an appitizer - and at least I enjoyed it! All healthy and EASY and pretty too!!
Caprese Salad
3 vine-ripe tomatoes, 1/4-inch thick slices
1 pound fresh mozzarella, 1/4-inch thick slices
20 to 30 leaves (about 1 bunch) fresh basil
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Balsamic or Red Wine Vinager, for drizzling
Coarse salt and pepper

Layer alternating slices of tomatoes and mozzarella, adding a basil leaf between each, on a large, shallow platter. Drizzle the salad with extra-virgin olive oil and vinager and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
