How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Brush a baking sheet with olive oil and arrange the baguette slices on the sheet in a single layer. Brush the tops with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Bake until crisp and golden, 15 to 18 minutes. If not using immediately, let the crostini cool, then store in an airtight container at room temperature until ready to use.
  • Core, seed and dice the tomatoes. In a bowl, stir together the tomatoes, half of the basil, the onion, garlic, vinegar, the 1/4 cup olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Slice the mozzarella into 1/4-inch-thick pieces or into smaller pieces so they fit on the crostini. To assemble, lay a piece of mozzarella on each crostini and spoon 1 to 2 Tbs. of the tomato salad on top. Garnish each with a pinch of the remaining basil. Serve immediately.

    Hey, T, I tried this and it was WONDERFUL! I like dishes like this especially since I started growing my own herb garden. My latest addition, Basil..I was at the store trying to buy fresh basil and came across one of those hydroponically grown ones. I asked the produce guy if it would grow if planted, he assured me it wouldn't as the plant had never seen soil. Boy, was he wrong! it loves its new spot in my garden right alongside the parsley.
