Mozzarella Caprese Sandwich

By • June 18, 2011 • 16 Comments



Author Notes: One of my all time favorite sandwiches is Mozzarella and tomato and basil drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Instead of fresh tomato I am using my tomato balsamic jam the recipe is here: http://www.food52.com/recipes/12640_tomato_balsamic_jam
This sandwich keeps well and seems to get better as all the flavors meld. Easy to pack for a picnic, its simple and delicious.

The caprese is one of my favorite salads and I like the portability of making it into a sandwich. The tomato jam sounds brilliant!

Thank you so much, mine too, short of walking around with a plate of caprese a sandwich is so much easier.

my only problem with this dish would be that I'd probably scarf it down even before It gets out the door for a picnic lunch!
