Tomato with Basil & Mozzarella Cheese

Tomato with Basil & Mozzarella Cheese is an amazing combination. My husband and I usually like food fixed the same way but this is one we like differently. He likes this just like the picture shows, not cooked. Me on the other hand, I prefer mine cooked in the oven where the tomato is warm and the cheese is melted. So I will leave it up to you how you would like to fix yours. The recipe is the same either way other than mine goes into the oven.

  1. A remnant from our working life is to have only finger food on Friday nights – no knives and forks allowed. We usuallly still try and add some veg or salad ingredients in finger food style to make it a balanced meal. This looks like an ideal addition.

  2. I’ve been craving slices of fresh tomato but this time of year the tomatoes are so disappointing in the grocery stores. Your post fed my craving, I might have to give in and buy some any way. I’d like mine cold, I must ask hubby if he wants his heated!
