Fresh mozzarella bruschetta

I love this in the summer! The most well known version is the classic fresh tomato, olive oil and basil. I had some very nice fresh mozzarella cheese and I thought this would be a simple way to eat it while maintaining its fresh flavor.

the best fresh mozzarella cheese available
Italian style rustic loaf of bread
good quality extra virgin olive oil
sea or kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
fresh garlic cloves

1.Fire up your grill, gas, charcoal or stove top pan
2. Slice the bread into half inch thick pieces
3. Brush the bread with the extra virgin olive oil
4. Place the bread slices on grill and cook till golden brown
remove from grill and rub the bread with the garlic cloves
5. Arrange bread slices on plate and top with sliced mozzarella cheese
6. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper

Note: A recipe with only four ingredients relies on using only the best ingredients, I served the bruschetta along with a baby arugula salad
