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!
