A delightful sandwich like this "P.L.T.," made with savory prosciutto, dressed with zesty basil mayo and served on hearty ciabatta bread, makes a wonderful -- and quick -- dinner.
- 1 cup loosely packed basil leaves, chopped fine
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 ciabatta loaf or 4 ciabatta rolls, split in half
- 1/2 pound prosciutto, sliced thin
- 2 small tomatoes, sliced
- 4 leaves romaine lettuce
In a small bowl, combine the basil and the mayonnaise and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Spread the mayonnaise on the bread. For each sandwich, top with a quarter of the prosciutto, 2 slices tomato and 1 lettuce leaf. Top with the remaining piece of ciabatta.
A serrated bread knife is good for slicing tomatoes too. Shop for a bread knife.
