If you are wanting a lighter fare with lots of flavor this is definitely the meal for you! My husband doesn't really care for tomatoes, but after trying a bite of this tasty treat...he wanted a sandwich for himself! I reluctantly game him mine and went to the kitchen to make more! (I was hoping he wouldn't like them so it meant more for me...)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 ripe tomatoes, sliced
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
4 slices of bread, lightly toasted
1. Preheat oven to broil.
2. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the olive oil and vinegar. Marinate the tomatoes in the mixture stirring occasionally.
3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, parsley, oregano, black pepper and 4 teaspoons Parmesan cheese. Spread mixture on each slice of toasted bread. Place marinated tomatoes on 2 slices and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
4. Place on a baking sheet and broil for 5 minutes, or until cheese turns golden brown. Serve immediately. (Great served with tomato soup and a salad for a light dinner!)
