Tomato Napoleon


This the Tomato Napoleon. The recipe came from Southern Living, August 2000. Make note that the Fresh Tomato Dressing needs to chill for 8 hours. We didn't have that kind of time, so we chilled it in the freezer. It still tasted wonderful.

Tomato Napoleon

8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into slices
3/4 C Fresh Tomato Dressing
3 large tomatoes, each cut into 4 slices
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
24 basil leaves, shredded

Place cheese in a shallow dish. Pour Fresh Tomato Dressing over cheese; cover and chill 1 hour. Remove cheese slices, reserving Tomato Dressing marinade.

Sprinkle tomato slices evenly with salt and pepper.

Place 1 tomato slice on each of 4 salad plates; top each with 1 cheese slice and 2 shredded basil leaves. Repeat with remaining tomato slices, cheese, and basil. Drizzle evenly with reserved tomato dressing.

Yield: 4 servings
Prep: 30 mins
Chill: 1 hr

1/2 C balsamic vinegar
3 garlic cloves, sliced
1 Tbl sugar

Yield: 4 Cups
