    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem basil and reserve half the leaves for garnish. Stack remaining leaves, roll into a long cylinder, and slice across length to create very thin strips (chiffonade). Cut tomatoes into ¼" dice. Trim cucumber, peel, and cut into a fine dice. Mince garlic. Peel and halve onion. Slice half the onion into thin strips (julienne) and finely dice other half.

  • Step 2 - Assemble the Flatbreads

    Assemble the Flatbreads

  • Step 3 - Grill the Flatbreads

    Grill the Flatbreads

    Place flatbreads on grill and cover with lid to melt cheese. (If using a grill pan, cover pan with foil.) Cook 8-10 minutes, or until flatbread is crisped and cheese is melted and slightly browned. Remove from grill and allow to cool before serving.

  • Step 4 - Make the Tomato Salad

    Make the Tomato Salad

    While flatbreads grill, start salad. In a mixing bowl, combine garlic, tomatoes, cucumber, and diced red onion with 1 tsp. olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Toss and refrigerate. Right before serving, add feta cheese and basil chiffonade (reserving whole leaves for pizza garnish). Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
