This "summer in a bowl" is a great way to make use of fresh tomatoes in a different and simple way.

2 tablespoons sherry or balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
6 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced or cubed
1/2 cup slivered fresh basil
10 slices baguette slices
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Crush tomatoes with your hands, sprinkle with sugar, sherry vinegar, good olive oil, and kosher salt, then put them aside to “stew.”
  2. Place fresh mozzarella in pasta bowls. Top with 1 cup tomatoes, basil and croutons.
