EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you can’t find ciabatta rolls, you can substitute focaccia or 8 slices of country bread.

This sandwich is especially delicious when made with large beefsteak tomatoes at their peak of ripeness. When ripe tomatoes are not available, try using chopped cherry tomatoes. They are more reliably flavorful no matter what the season.

Fresh mozzarella can be used instead of the slices.
