I have always loved caprese salad. The fresh flavors are just amazing. And grilled cheese is one of my favorite things to have for lunch, so I decided to combine the two. I used provolone cheese instead of the typical fresh mozzarella but this sandwich is so delish, I have had it a few times this week and thought I would share the love!
Caprese Grilled Cheese
2 slices sourdough bread
2 slices provolone cheese
4 leaves fresh basil, sliced thin
4 slices fresh Roma tomatoes
Balsamic vinegar and olive oil - for dipping
Assemble sandwich with cheese, tomato, and basil. Butter the outside of the bread and grill on a hot griddle until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden. ( Placing a lid over the sandwich as it cooks helps the cheese to melt without burning the bread). Mix balsamic vinegar and oil together to dip the grilled cheese in!
