1. note A grown-up can help slice the mozzarella cheese and tomatoes into thin rounds.
2. Pull the basil leaves off the stems with your hands.
3. note A grown-up can help cut the baguette in half the long way. Drizzle olive oil on both halves of the bread. Then layer the cheese slices, tomatoes, and basil leaves on top of one half. Sprinkle with a little salt.
