Tomato & Smoked Mozzarella Sandwiches


From EatingWell:  November/December 2007

Take a classic combination like fresh tomatoes and mozzarella, add a couple flavor-packed ingredients like olives and sun-dried tomatoes, put it between two pieces of crusty bread and you'll have a satisfying weekend lunch or an easy warm-weather supper.

4 servings | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes



  1. Place the sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let plump for 10 minutes.
  2. On a cutting board, mash the garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt with the side of a knife until it’s a smooth paste. Transfer to a bowl and whisk in 1 tablespoon oil, the lemon juice and crushed red pepper.
  3. Drain the tomatoes and finely chop. Add to the bowl with the dressing, along with the olives; mix well.
  4. Spread the tomato mixture on half the bread. Layer on cheese slices, some pepper, then the tomato slices; season with salt and vinegar. Top with several basil leaves. Brush the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over the remaining bread slices and set them on the sandwiches.
