These Caprese Sandwiches are stacked with thick slices fresh mozzarella cheese, juicy ripe tomatoes, and fresh basil leaves, then drizzled with balsamic glaze. Toasting the bread and drizzling it with olive oil, then rubbing a garlic clove on it while it’s still warm, adds a subtle flavor that puts this simple sandwich over the top! This is the perfect no-cook summer dinner or lunch idea when it’s way too hot to cook and it takes five minutes to throw together.
There’s not much better than the combination of fresh mozzarella, juicy ripe summer tomatoes, and fresh basil. The Holy Trinity of summertime. And when you throw these classic ingredients in between two slices of good bread with some olive oil, garlic, and balsamic glaze? *chef’s kiss*
Best of all? You don’t have to cook anything and it only takes five minutes!
Ingredients for Caprese Sandwiches
- Bread – Almost any kind will do, but I love a good Italian bread or crusty sourdough. See below for more ideas.
- Fresh Mozzarella
- Tomatoes – the riper the better – if you don’t have good in season tomatoes, try Campari tomatoes (available at most grocery stores).
