Makes about 24
Here’s what you will need:
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
6 large basil leaves, julienned
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
2-3 tablespoons balsamic glaze
Begin by diagonally slicing the baguette. Then, lay the slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the baking sheet on the top rack of your oven and broil the bread 4-5 minutes until it is golden brown. Set aside to cool.
In a small bowl, gently toss together the cherry tomatoes, basil, olive oil, and a bit of salt and pepper.
To finish, layer the ingredients on the toast. Begin with mozzarella, then add tomatoes, and finally, drizzle with balsamic glaze.
