I know some of you don't like tomatoes but those of us who do
really like them fresh, right-off-the-vine, fresh. The difference
between a fresh tomato and a store bought variety is so
different, I can't think of any other food that shares that
distinction. Here's an easy recipe for said tomato and add
some freshly grown Basil and use some good balsamic glaze
Ingredients: serves 2 easily
1 large fresh tomato
4-5 slices mozzarella
6-8 large fresh Basil leaves
3-4 tbsp. balsamic glaze vinegar or more
6 slices of a baguette
small dish of marinated olives
2 glasses of your preferred wine
*optional, salami or prosciutto
2 tbsp. of olive oil to brush on your bread
Slice tomato but not all the way through.
Slice mozzarella and place between layers of tomato.
Place on serving dish and drizzle with glaze.
Brush baguette slices with olive oil and toast
under broiler till lightly brown.
Place bread, olives, and optional meat on serving
dish with tomato and cheese.
Pour some wine and enjoy!
