A recipe to die for

Last night I went to a womens Hodgepodge night at Church (enrichment or homemaking)
It was all about gardening and learning about composting etc. We also had a section on growing herbs and how to do it etc.
It was a great evening, very informative. Lisa and Tess did a great job and everyone had lots of questions and were able to swap tips and ideas etc.

It was topped off by refreshments. These refreshments were made with herbs and vegetables that can be found in any garden.
It was so great to see tomatoes being used in a way OTHER than Salsa or in a salad.

One of the refreshments was Fresh basil and Mozerella sandiwiches.(they were almost like a bruschetta). It was so good I wanted to devour the entire plate.
Here is the recipe for this amazing appetizer.
I would have taken a picture, but i didnt want people to think I was wierd for taking pictures of food.

2 Loaves French Bread(or you can use herbed bread)
2-3 mozzarella Balls(fresh Mozz cheese)
4-5 Roma Tomatoes
1 pack basil Leaves

1/4-1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar
1 packet Good Seasonings Italian Dressing Dry Mix
2/3 cup vegetable oil
combine all dressing ingredients until well blended. set aside.

Dice Roma Tomatoes, chop Basil leaves and slice the mozzarella cheese.
Toast slices of french bread. Top toast with cheese, tomato and basil. Drizzle dressing over the top and enjoy.

Tess made these with a homemade herbed bread(rosemary) They were so delicious. A perfect starter or a great pot luck item.
