For a platter salad, use slicing tomatoes and cut very thin. Lay in a single layer, and top with a drizzle of olive oil, salt to taste, finely minced garlic and fresh basil. Serve either chilled or room temp.
For a layered salad in a pretty clear glass container, do the same but stack the tomatoes with each layer dressed with the seasonings.
To use cherry tomatoes, just cut each one in half and dress with the seasonings. Serve as a side dish.
Leftovers (if there are any!) are wonderful on a sandwich.
If you lack fresh basil, just leave it out – the salad will still be delicious. Do not, under any circumstances, attempt to replace with dried basil!
