Mel and Mal's Ciabatta with Balsamic

  • 1 stick of Ciabatta bread, sliced diagonally
  • 6 fresh basil leaves, torn
  • 4 tbsp first pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of Balsamic vinegar

A truly Italian starter!

I found this recipe whilst at a local Italian restaurant around the corner from QVC but I have never actually seen it on the menu in any other Italian since

Serves : 2        Prep/Cooking Time : 10 mins

Tip : This is simple and quick to prepare and totally delicious with a glass of Chianti!


Make the Dip

Pour all the olive oil onto a serving plate and swirl around so it is even and then just add drops of balsamic over the top.

Due to the density of the 2 liquids, the vinegar will form into little dots.

Decorate to Serve

Add the torn basil leaves on top and using the bread, dip into the mixture
