Grilled Zucchini Caprese Sandwich
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.
This recipe is so easy, it will take you less than 20 minutes and you'll be eating soon!
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.
There's nothing like grilled vegetables…my favorite side dish during the summer!
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!
