    Richard Sebastian's Note:

    This is a variation of a bruschetta and Caprese Salad. There are 3 steps but it is really worth the effort. It uses all the elements of a Caprese salad as a topping ala bruschetta. Thanks to Chef Marie Yates for the name.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to "low" broil.
    2. 2
      Take an 8x11 cookie tray and spray "lightly" with olive oil no stick spray.
    3. 3
      Slice the baguette into 1/2 inch slices and spread out to cover the tray.
    4. 4
      Slice cherry tomatoes in half.
    5. 5
      Note: the next two steps must be watched carefully to avoid a burnt app.
    6. 6
      Drizzle a "small" amount of extra virgin olive oil over the slices and pop in the oven until "lightly" browned. Here you can add a bit of minced garlic to taste.
    7. 7
      Remove from oven and sprinkle a small amount of mozzarella on each. Pop back in oven until cheese is "barely" melted.
    8. 8
      Remove from oven and put a dollop of pesto topped with a half cherry tomato on each slice. Serve and get ready to make more.

      Yum! I used fresh tomatoes from the farmer's market, fresh mozzerella cheese, and home made pesto. I didn't have any french bread so I used an english muffin. It was amazing, but I think the baguette would have made it even better. I just got back from my honeymoon in Italy, so I am craving caprese salads all of the time now! Thanks for the recipe!

      DELICIOUS ~ I used a large slice of fresh-made sourdough bread, and fresh mozzarella, and chopped whole tomatoes, and followed the directions as written. DH said "AWESOME" ~ what more can I say :) Thanks for posting a new favorite. Made for Spring PAC 2010!
