and slice the

into small pieces, about the size of a thick coin. Chiffonade the
Fresh Basil Leaves (12)

Add the diced tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil to the mixing bowl. Add the
Balsamic Vinegar (1 Tbsp)
Salt (1/2 tsp)
Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp)
and mix thoroughly. Set the bowl aside while you prepare the bread.
Place an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the broiler on high. Slice the

Toast the bread under the broiler for 4-5 minutes or until the edges of the bread are golden-brown, but keep a close eye on it so it doesn’t burn. Remove the tray and place the bread on a serving plate.
Serve immediately. You’ll hardly be able to resist.
