Caprese Garlic Bread #vegetarian #lunch

Caprese Garlic Bread is the ideal mix of two most loved dishes. It makes for the ideal summer treat. A day or two ago my significant other rolled in from the nursery and trained me that I expected to begin making more plans with tomatoes. Our greenhouse has been detonating with tomatoes and we are coming up short on companions to impart them to.

Caprese Salad is a most loved summer plate of mixed greens and I am never one to leave behind a cut of garlic bread so this Caprese Garlic Bread was basically a match made in paradise.

The bread is spread with layer of garlic parmesan margarine and after that beat with cuts of new mozzarella and new tomatoes. Prepare the bread for around 15 minutes and after that sprinkle with some crisp basil and a shower of a yummy balsamic coating. Gracious my! This stuff is delightful!!
