Ingredients

  • 1 French baguette, cut into diagonal 1/2 inch slices

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, halved

  • 6 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped

  • 1 bunch fresh basil, julienned

  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler. Brush the slices of bread lightly with olive oil, and place on a baking sheet. Toast under the broiler for about 3 minutes. Watch carefully. Rub each crostini with a garlic clove for flavor.

  2. Place the tomatoes into a medium bowl, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Place the crostini on a serving tray. Top each one with a slice of mozzarella cheese, cover with a spoonful of tomatoes, and garnish with fresh basil.
