    What a great and easy snack! We happened to have fresh mozzarella, so we cut slices of that and put it over the tomato. I also didn't have fresh basil so just sprinkled some dried basil on top. I also used regular mayo because that's what we had. LOVED this, I will definitely do this again!

    I don't eat mayo, so I brushed mine with a little olive oil. Great snack or appetizer!

    Awesome recipe...and so easy to make. I used fresh avocado instead of mayonnaise.

    I absolutely love this recipe. I have shared it with others and they started to make it too. I use McCormick Perfect Pinch Basil and Garlic in place of the fresh basil.
