Caprese Sandwich

A simple, perfect Caprese sandwich with mozzarella, tomato, basil and balsamic on a good baguette is a five-minute, no-cook summer lunch or dinner. As my daughter would say, BOOM.


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 multigrain (or plain) baguette
  • 1/2 pound fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 3 small, ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 5 basil leaves, torn into pieces
  • Fine sea salt and black pepper


  • Cut the baguette in half lengthwise and lay cut sides up on a cutting board.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil and vinegar with a fork until emulsified. Pour half the dressing over each piece of baguette and spread evenly.
  • Place the mozzarella slices in a single layer across the bottom half of baguette, followed by the tomato slices, followed by the basil leaves. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Close the sandwich, cut into pieces, and serve.
