Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 8 slices (about 1/2 in. thick) crusty Italian bread
  • 3 medium ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced thinly
  • 16 medium basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Prepare a grill for medium heat (350° to 450°). Combine 1 tbsp. oil and the garlic and brush onto 1 side of bread.
  2. 2. Lay bread oiled side down on grill and cook until slightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Turn bread over, lay tomato slices on bread to fit, overlapping if needed, then lay cheese slices over tomatoes. Cover grill and cook until cheese starts to melt, about 4 minutes.
  3. 3. Transfer sandwiches to a platter. Put 2 basil leaves over each sandwich and drizzle with remaining 1 tbsp. oil and the vinegar. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
