Simple food = best meals

In the midst of trying to create menus to blow the pants off some guests, I dug into my lunch - a giant heirloom tomato and some fresh mozz. No basil or anything. Just salt and pepper. And, in between bites of creamy mozz and juicy, sweet, aromatic tomato, it dawned on me. Honestly, the simplest food is somehow the best and most complex (without trying to be).

What other simple pairings (or singletons) do you think make the best meals? I'm also madly in love with beets and blue cheese. Ya know, maybe I'm just in love with cheese...
