  • 1 fresh whole wheat baguette
  • 6 oz fresh grape or cherry tomatoes sliced into halves, through stem
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil 12-15 leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese thinly sliced


  1. Preheat the oven on the broiler setting.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, salt, and pepper. Allow the mixture to sit for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Slice the baguette into 1/2-inch slices. On a baking sheet lined with tin foil, arrange the baguette slices in a single layer. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes, until slightly brown. Then, flip and brown opposite side for one minute. Watch closely so the bread doesn’t burn. Once crisp and browned, remove from the broiler and set aside.
  4. To serve, layer a slice of the mozzarella cheese on the toasted bread and then top with the tomato mixture.
