This is a great meatless sandwich that is open to interpretation!

Only way I could improve on this, and I will next time, is to toast the bread first. Great sandwich. MUST be made with fresh mozzarella (bocconcini) if you can get it.


  1. Slice your favorite baguette.
  2. Douse with a balsamic vinaigrette (however you like your vinaigrette; I like garlic and shallots) Add thinly sliced tomatoes.
  3. Add a layer of roasted red peppers.
  4. Add a generous layer of sliced, fresh mozzarella.
  5. Sprinkle with herbs (thyme is good with this, or oregano) and salt and pepper.
  6. BIG AL is best when the flavors have had time to meld.
  7. It is one of the few sandwiches I make or order when eating at a local restaurant.
