Directions:
Slice the top off of the tomatoes, then cut in half. Remove as many seeds as possible.
Then cut the tomatoes into small pieces and put in a large bowl.
Squeeze the ball of mozzarella to remove as much water as possible. Then cube it into small pieces and toss with the tomatoes.
Gather the basil leaves together and slice thinly into small ribbons and add to the tomatoes and mozzarella. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with some salt and toss together well. Put in the fridge while you toast the baguette.
Slice the baguette at an angle into pieces. Brush on both sides with some butter and broil in the oven turning over once during cooking. You can also sear them in a hot skillet until golden brown.
Scoop a heaping amount of the tomato mixture onto each piece of baguette.
Sprinkle with a little more salt and drizzle with balsamic.
