Ingredients

  • 1 Pound cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, to taste
  • Balsamic vinegar, to taste
  • 6-8 slices good, crusty Italian bread
  • 8 Ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced thinly
  • Oregano or basil leaves, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, drizzle the tomatoes with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar and gently toss them to coat. Lay the bread slices on cookie sheets. Brush the tops with olive oil and bake for about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven.

Layer the slices of mozzarella on top of each slice of bread, followed by the tomatoes, and return the bread to the oven to warm the tomatoes and soften the cheese, for 2-3 minutes.

Remove from the oven and drizzle with more olive oil. Top with herbs and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Tomato Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
