This was such a yummy recipe. Ryan and I enjoyed every bite. I wish our kids liked tomatoes; I would make this recipe all of the time. It is so delicious and easy. I found this recipe at spendwithpennies.com
3 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
8-oz mozzarella, cubed
10 medium basil leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt & Pepper
1 baguette or Italian bread, sliced 1” thick
1 large clove fresh garlic, minced
Mix tomatoes, basil, parsley, mozzarella, olive oil, garlic, and dash of salt and pepper. Allow to sit at room temperature while you prepare the bread.
Place bread slices under a broiler for 1 to 2 minutes or until the bread is very lightly toasted.
Optional: Immediately after removing bread from oven, rub the garlic cloves over each slice. (I didn’t do this.)
Top the bread slices with 1⁄4 cup of the tomato and mozzarella mixture.
