Peppery Mozzarella Salad
Cut avocado in thin slices and arrange with cheese and tomato.
Separate shallots in rings and scatter over salad.
In a screw-tipped jar, combine olive oil, lemon juice, sugar, salt, peppercorns and oregano. Shake vigorously until well blended. Spoon over salad and let marinate 1 hour.
Garnish with basil, if desired, and serve with warm crusty bread or bread sticks.
