Recipe: Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta

This is the time of year for the best heirloom tomatoes around. We brought back a ton from Carmel. Many people have submitted recipes to us but we really liked this simple way to enjoy the freshness of the tomatoes.

1 green heirloom tomato, sliced thin
1 red heirloom tomato, sliced thin
1 yellow heirloom tomato, sliced thin
4 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced
3 cloves marinated garlic, shaved
2 balsamic marinated shallots, sliced
6-8 slices of french bread
1 clove of garlic, cut in half for rubbing

Brush both sides of the french bread with olive oil and toast. Rub both sides of toasted bread with the garlic. Place one piece of cheese on the bread, then place one slice of each color of tomato onto the cheese. Place the shaved marinated garlic on the tomatoes and add the marinated shallot slices on top. Magnifico!
