Servings: 4 Prep 15 mins Grill 1 min to 2 mins

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 inch slice whole grain bread (about 6 oz. total)
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 6 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese or fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into cubes
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Make It

1. For a charcoal grill, place bread slices on the rack of the grill over medium-hot coals. Place tomatoes in a disposable foil pan. Place on grill next to bread. Cover and grill for 1 to 2 minutes or until bread is toasted and tomatoes are charred, turning bread once and shaking pan with tomatoes occasionally. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Add bread and tomatoes to grill rack. Grill as above.)

2. Cut bread into 1/2-inch pieces. Slice tomatoes in half. In a large bowl combine bread, tomatoes, cheese, basil, oil, vinegar, and pepper; toss to coat. Makes 4 servings.
