Serves: 4

Prep time: 15-25 min

Cook time: 0 min

Total time: 15-25 min

  • 6 Roma tomatoes (diced into ½-inch pieces)
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 8-10 slices of Italian bread
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8-10 ¼-inch slices of fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2 whole cloves of garlic cut into 2 pieces
Prep/cooking instructions:
  1. In a bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, minced garlic, red onion, extra-virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, basil, and pepper. Once this mixture is complete, cover the bowl with a cloth, foil, or plastic wrap. Set to the side.
  2. Rub bread slices with garlic halves. Lightly brush the top (or both sides if desired) with olive oil. Toast or grill bread on both sides until bread is slightly crispy. Once the bread is toasted, top it off with a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese. Add tomato mixture as desired.

Additional tips:

  • You can make the tomato portion of the recipe several hours ahead. However, do not refrigerate the mixture if it will be served within the hour. You’ll enjoy a fuller flavor if the mixture is at room temperature
  • Make your mixture ahead of toasting the bread so that the bread is still warm when topped with the tomatoes
