Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Roasted Red Peppers
1 recipe scale / convert
2 lg. fresh meaty tomatoes
Salt and fresh ground pepper
4 sm. rounds)
Roasted red peppers
10 basil leaves, sliced in ribbons
1 loaf good crusty bread
Slice tomatoes about 1/2 inch thick and place on a serving dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Slice the mozzarella about 1/4 inch thick, and place on top of the tomatoes. Arrange slices of roasted pepper over the cheese. Slice basil leaves into ribbons (to get the basil "ribbons", stack the leaves, roll them up, and slice them across), and sprinkle with basil. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Serve on pieces of the bread.
This is a very simple, but extremely mouth watering dish. Serve as an appetizer or as a meal. My husband and I will each have our own tomato served up. Take small pieces of good crusty bread, top them with your layered tomatoes, have a taste, and try not to say mmmmm. And you'll need a bit of extra bread to soak up the oil, vinegar, and juices left in your plate.
