With Halloween looming mini Kit Kats may become your go-to power bar this week. Keep your eye on the food pyramid (the bottom section) with this texture mash-up of crunchy veggie slaw, silky cheese and tender focaccia. Buffalo mozzarella can go head-to-head with a Tootsie Pop any day.
1/4 cup julienned carrots
1/4 cup julienned zucchini
1/2 roasted red pepper, sliced into strips
few slices of red onion
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
1/4 tsp honey mustard
1 tbsp olive oil
Ontario buffalo mozzarella slices
For the veggie slaw, combine ¼ cup julienned carrots, ¼ cup julienned zucchini, ½ of a roasted red pepper sliced into strips and add a few thin slices of red onion. In a small bowl, whisk together a scant teaspoon balsamic vinegar, good pinch salt and pepper, ¼ teaspoon honey mustard and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Toss with vegetables. Generously layer the focaccia with Ontario buffalo mozzarella slices (look for the Bella Casara label).
Bring the slaw in a separate container and add to sandwich just before digging in.
