ITALIAN MOZZARELLA SANDWICH


This simply delicious Mozzarella Sandwich is a refreshing lunchtime sandwich that blends the flavors of garlic, basil, olive oil, cheese and black olives.

This is just a suggested sandwich.

Of course you can add anything you like. Just make sure you use fresh mozzarella di bufala.

Sometimes I will add a few roasted red peppers and some prosciutto to this sandwich for a little added flavor.

 

 

 

For this Mozzarella Sandwich I rubbed some olive oil and garlic over the bread and toasted it before piling on the mozzarella.

This sandwich is great for a light lunch or afternoon snack. Enjoy!
