caprese salad sandwiches

Confession:

I tried to make homemade mozzarella last week.  It did not work.  I made something, but it was not mozzarella.  Or edible.  It was frustrating.  It’s just that several blogs raved about how easy it is to make and that was all lies.

So, I had to buy the real deal but it was worth it because these sandwiches are life changing.  I’m not kidding.  

Try to only eat one…

My favorite thing about these little guys is how fresh and simple they are.  If you’re a gardener this sandwich is a wonderful way to use your tomatoes and basil.  I’m making myself hungry just thinking about it.

Caprese Salad Sandwiches

good bread (homemade is worth it), sliced
butter (optional)
fresh mozzarella, sliced
fresh tomato, sliced
fresh basil leaves, torn to bite-size
sea salt
freshly ground pepper
olive oil
balsamic vinegar

Toast the bread and add a bit of butter, if you like.  Then layer on slices of mozzarella, tomato, and basil.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Eat immediately.

These are great by themselves as a light main dish or served with soup.

My big kids aren’t fans of the balsamic but they love them with everything else!  I hope you do, too!
