Author Notes: One of my all time favorite sandwiches is Mozzarella and tomato and basil drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Instead of fresh tomato I am using my tomato balsamic jam the recipe is here:
This sandwich keeps well and seems to get better as all the flavors meld. Easy to pack for a picnic, its simple and delicious.

Serves: 4

  • Recipe tomato balsamic jam (see headnote for link to recipe)
  • 8 ounce fresh mozzarella
  • 1 Baguette
  • Fresh basil
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil and balsamic
  1. Make the tomato jam set aside to cool, slice the mozzarella, wash and dry the basil. Slice the baguette in half lengthwise, spread tomato jam on one side of the baguette, lay the mozzarella on top of the tomato, lay the basil on top of the mozzarella and drizzle with some olive oil, balsamic and some sea salt and pepper.
