- Chop the tomatoes into halves or quarters, depending on their size. Mix together in a bowl with a good dash of olive oil, the balsamic vinegar and plenty of salt and pepper.
- Toast the bread slices on both sides until golden and divide between plates. Pile the tomato mixture on top, spooning over any juices.
- Mix the pesto with the lemon juice and oil to create a looser dressing and drizzle this over the top of the tomatoes. Finish with the shredded mozzarella and rocket leaves, serving immediately.
