Grilled Veggie Caprese Sandwich Recipe
Grilled Veggie Caprese Sandwich Recipe – made with fresh ingredients, perfect for lunch/dinner/party appetizer.
This Grilled Veggie Caprese Sandwich is made with Stella® Fresh Mozzarella and organic tomatoes, zucchini and eggplant from my local Farmer’s market it is ready in no time and tastes so delicious!
This recipe is inspired by Stella® Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, that is new on the market.
I’ve been obsessed with this grilled veggie Caprese sandwiche lately.
In the summer, I usually make a Caprese salad with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and grilled zucchini and eggplant. My family loves the addition of charred veggies, and this also makes the salad more filling.
About a week ago, I got a log of Stella® Fresh Mozzarella for a salad and I got back home, I was so hungry, so I decided to turn one of my favorite salads into a sandwich.
All ingredients are fresh and perfect for summer. I used fresh basil from my herb garden and drizzled some reduced balsamic vinegar for extra sweetness. You can also add pesto sauce and grilled chicken, if you’d like. The grilled veggies were more than enough for me. Not to mention that I these days get hungry so quickly, so I didn’t have the patience to make grilled chicken.
This sandwich could be sliced into smaller pieces and served as a party appetizer. I’m planning to make it for 4th of July.

Stella® Fresh Mozzarella offers a clean flavor and soft, delicate texture reminiscent of the fresh mozzarella originally handmade in the Italian countryside.
