Caprese Sandwich-The Little Shop of Olive Oils

Caprese Sandwich



  • Toast the bread slices until they are golden and slightly crispy. This can be done in a toaster, on a grill, or in a skillet.
  • Once toasted, drizzle a generous amount of EVOO over one side of each bread slice.
  • Start by placing a few basil leaves on one slice of the toasted bread.
  • Layer with tomato slices. Lightly season the tomato slices with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Place the slices of fresh mozzarella cheese on top of the tomatoes.
  • Drizzle a bit of balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze over the mozzarella for added flavor. If you prefer a sweeter touch, the balsamic glaze is a great option.
  • Top with more fresh basil leaves.
  • Place the second slice of bread on top, with the EVOO-drizzled side facing in.
  • Press down gently to help the sandwich stick together.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the sandwich in half or into quarters, depending on your preference.
  • erve immediately, with a side salad or some potato chips if desired.
