    newmama's Note:

    This sandwich screams summer to me. I made it after going to the farmer's market and getting lots of fresh ingredients, including wonderful herbed ciabatta bread. If you don't like garlic much, just rub a clove on there (sliced to get the flavor. This is also delicious cold, or with a drizzle or balsamic vinegar on the tomato. For a slightly different (equally tasty, if you ask me) option, use havarti slices instead of mozzarella. Enjoy!

      I've made sandwiches just like this and they are delicious. A variation to this recipe is to marinade the fresh mozzarella cheese in balsamic vinegar for a day (or at least a few hours). Add a good quality prosciutto to the sandwich and drizzle a little olive oil over the tomatoes. Follow the recipe for everything else. This is to die for.
