One of my favorite salads served up as a toasted sandwich.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brush one side of each bread slice with olive oil. Place 2 slices, oil side down, on a baking sheet and layer with basil leaves, tomato slices, and mozzarella slices. Salt and pepper to taste and then top with remaining bread slices, oil side up.
  2. Broil 6 inches from heat, turning once during cooking, until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 2 to 3 minutes total. Serve immediately.

Oh lovely gooey mozzarella with vine ripened tomato and fresh from the garden basil and toasted in the sandwich press (so did not use oil) - great lunch, thank you Debbwl, made for Make My Recipe - Spring.

I cheated a bit and used regular white sandwich bread. That's the only bread I had and wanted to do it for lunch. I used fresh basil and fresh tomatoes from my garden. The taste was great even with this bread. Thanks Debb :) Made for PRMR tag game

This was an amazing sandwich! Used fresh sourdough bread and it was sooo good! I wish I had a better picture, and my camera is going out and it's irritating! I will definitely make this again for sure! Made for Photo Tag 2010.
