Ciabatta bread

fresh mozzarella cut into chunks

some basil leaves

tomato slices

1 TBS basil sauce

1 tsp olive oil

black pepper


Fill ciabatta bread with fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, tomato slices, black pepper, a drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and my basil sauce

Heat the sandwich in a preheated oven (180 degrees c) for around 10 mn then grill a little to get those beautiful grill lines!

Basil sauce

2 cups basil leaves
2 TBS lightly roasted pine nuts
1/2 cup good olive oil
A squeeze of lime
A pinch of lime zest
A tiny bit of black pepper
In a food processor, place the basil, pine nuts, black pepper, lime zest and squeezed lime (squeeze directly in the processor u only need a tiny bit)

Process all until u obtain a fine mixture
With the processor on low speed

Add the olive oil as a thin thread in a steady motion until they are all well incorporated

Use immediately,or refrigerate/ freeze for later use!
