      Delicious! I left out the mayo and thoroughly enjoyed it. Used ciabatta bread

      Yum! I thought I was eating a gourmet sandwich from a nice restaurant. I used about 5 leaves of basil (but mine may have been smaller), and chopped the basil to release more of its flavor.

      This is so simple to make but tastes fantastic! I too left out the mayo. The balsamic really gives so much taste. I'll be making these often for a quick lunch or dinner. Thanks for sharing!
