Caprese Sandwich: Your New Lunchtime Favorite

Leave a comment

The following recipe is one of my all-time fresh summer favorites. A caprese sandwich is composed of just a few ingredients stacked as high as you desire. The classic combination of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil complement each other to shake up the normal meat, cheese and bread routine. It’s best enjoyed on a sunny day’s picnic or to brighten up a hum-drum day at the office. You can also try this yummy combo sans bread as a lovely summer salad! Just add in some spinach and a balsamic vinaigrette and you’ll be good to go. Enjoy as always!
