Grilled Zucchini Caprese Sandwich

Grilled Zucchini Caprese Sandwich from

I’m excited to share this quick and simple summer recipe thanks to Cobblestone Bread Co..

To me, summer is about long sunny days, icy cold drinks, grilling outside and hanging out with friends and family. I think it’s my favorite season of the year because of the long sunny days (but not the Florida heat part of it :) ). I love easy grilling recipes and this recipe is a fresh take on a classic – a caprese sandwich with grilled zucchini and I love that it’s vegetarian.

You know as well as I do, how important the bread is. The bread makes the sandwich! For this recipe, I chose the Cracked Wheat Kaiser Rolls. It’s so good and works great for every day sandwiches and for your favorite grilling recipes.

Add olive oil and salt and pepper your zucchini slices. You can use eggplant or red peppers, if you want.

It’s so good. I used a fig balsamic glaze when I made these and it’s awesome. It’s your favorite caprese sandwich kicked up a notch. For Curtis, I would have to add a piece of grilled chicken. Light, easy, quick and it’s even gourmet!

    I made this for dinner tonight…Fabulous! I used Cracked Wheat Sourdough brushed with a little olive oil and toasted it on the grill while the zucchini cooked, and some thin, grilled chicken breast. Could not get enough! Thanks for sharing!

    I love this great recipe for summer grilling. Meat is the common thought where the grill is concerned, and I adore ideas that break out of that fleshy box. :)
