In My Kitchen: Caprese Sandwiches

I love caprese sandwiches! For vegetarians (or anyone really), they’re a fresh, yummy, healthy sandwich option. They can get a little pricey at restaurants and cafes, though, so I often like to make them myself at home. It’s easier than you think!

All you need is:

  • Fresh mozzarella, part-skim or whole milk. You can find this in the gourmet cheese section of any grocery store
  • Sourdough or ciabatta bread
  • Tomatoes
  • Fresh basil
  • Balsamic vinegar (not to be confused with balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing)

The most important step is to toast your bread – toasting sourdough is necessary to bring out its flavor, and toasting ciabatta bread is just delicious.
