A fantastic meal for when the sun is shining and is a true feel good dish. This dish is ideal for when your focaccia is going a little stale and makes a perfect starter or light snack. Ciabatta bread also works well with this dish. Any tomatoes can be used but I prefer sweet cherry tomatoes, you could use sun dried tomatoes too if you prefer. The proscuitto can also be left of of course for vegetarians. Serves 2.
1 ball of mozzarella
150g of cherry tomatoes
1/2 red onion
2 slices proscuitto ham
Cut a square of focaccia roughly 6cmx6cm but the shape doesn’t matter too much.
Next cut this in half like you would a burger bun to make 2 squares.
Cut the tomatoes in half and place in a bowl with finely chopped red onions, ripped basil leaves salt pepper and a little olive oil and mix together.
Toast the bread until golden.
Put onto 2 plates and top with the tomato mixture, now add ripped mozzarella and finish off with the slice of prosciutto and a basil leaf.
Drizzle with a little more olive oil if desired and a splash of balsamic vinegar.
It’s that simple and delicious.
