I think I've mentioned before (to anyone who would listen) that I absolutely love a good caprese sandwich. It's like heaven on crusty bread. A few nights ago we had dinner at Caputo's and I had a caprese that was pretty good, but not quite up to my standards. When we visited our favorite bakery (Vosen's) yesterday and I found a lovely looking french baguette, I knew I had to take things into my own hands! The result was the best sandwich I've had in a long, long time. I could seriously eat this every day, forever. I think it was especially good because I used tomatoes and basil from my own garden!
baguette (or other crusty bread)
1-2 tsp basil pesto (I used the premade pesto from Costco)
1-2 tsp mayonnaise
1 medium tomato, sliced and seeded
fresh mozzarella (Costco even has it pre-sliced now!)
balsamic vinegar (mine is white so it's not super visible)
Combine pesto and mayonnaise, and spread on both sides of baguette. Top with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, then sprinkle with balsamic vinegar. Eat and feel fulfilled as the juices drip down your chin.
