One of my favorite sandwiches of all time is the tomato, mozzarella and basil sandwich. It’s simple, doesn’t require any cooking, and is really really tasty.

A tomato, mozzarella and basil sandwich has the following ingredients:
ripe tomatoes
fresh mozzarella (this is the soft stuff in liquid – not the hard kind you put on pizza)
Italian bread or a baguette
fresh basil
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
Some people like to add in additional elements to this sandwich, like avocado, prosciutto, roasted peppers and more. I like it just fine with the basic ingredients.
Step 2: Slice the Tomatoes and the Mozzarella, and Chiffonade the Basil. The first step is to start slicing the tomatoes and mozzarella. Cut the mozzarella and the tomatoes at roughly the same thickness – about a 1/4″.
Step 3: Assemble the Sandwich
To assemble the sandwich begin to lay your slices of tomato and mozzarella. On top of the tomato goes the mozzarella cheese. After the cheese comes the basil.
Step 4: Seasonings
The sandwich is finished off with some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Put the olive oil and vinegar on first, and then add on the salt and pepper.

Step 5: Finished Sandwich
Put on the top piece of bread and you are finished with the sandwich.
