I’m sure I’ve mentioned a MILLION times my love for basil and all things caprese. The flavor combinations are just so refreshing. A colleague just recently returned from her vacation in Europe. Italy was on the list and I was beyond excited to see some pictures of the food she ate there. Like all the foods! Talking to her about her trip left me inspired and craving Italian food. She talked about the amount of prosciutto consumed and I can’t say that I would ever complain about that. I know I named this the caprese sandwich and perhaps it should be named the Live Wildly and Inspire, thanks to her inspiration, but whatever you want to call it… delicious would also be appropriate… it will taste so good. I left everything as is here. It’s the most delicious simple sandwich. This would be best served with a glass of prosecco.
- Note the lack of amounts here. This sandwich is meant to be made to your taste preference.
- Slice the bread in half, leaving it slightly attached to help hold the ingredients intact.
- Drizzle both halves with olive oil. Layer sliced tomato on one half. Place the torn mozzarella on top of the tomato. On the other half lay out the prosciutto. Top with basil leaves. Season with salt and pepper if you would like. Fold together!
