Caprese Sandwiches with Balsamic Vinaigrette

caprese2brighter

Today’s post is going to be short & sweet! Mainly because my butt is on fire guys. Whoa. I started PT last week for this hip thing I have and I am sore in muscles…I knew I had (lets be serious), but were pretty content not getting any use. Now they’re very unhappy about not being able to free load off the rest of my lower half – so high maintenance! But before I go duct tape ice around my entire body I need to share my Caprese Sandwich recipe with you all!

I made these sandwiches for a party I catered last weekend – they’re so simple, but with the right details taste extravagant. What takes these over the top is a rich balsamic vinaigrette dressing, seasoning of the tomatoes and mozzarella, and really fresh and delicious ingredients.

 

Corner Bakery’s are nationwide right? I used their ciabatta for the party and it was fabulous. Its the perfect size, texture, and flavor – sometimes ciabatta you find at the grocery store can be oversized and tough, these worked great – especially if you order fresh (perfect for parties).  So the bottom line is to find good bread. Makes such a yummy difference!

 

And then… find good tomatoes, mozzarella, and fresh basil. Tomatoes are out of season right now, but if you look for the little ‘Compari’ ones at the store, these are usually pretty sweet and tastier than some of the larger varieties despite it being February. Yum!

 

So now that I’ve sent you on a scavenger hunt for your ingredients :) Here is my super simple sandwich recipe! Enjoy your weekends everyone!

  8. These sandwiches look so tasty. One of my favorites but like you said I stay away in the winter because the tomatoes can ruin it in one bite. I will have to be on the look out for those Compari.

    • Whipped Baking says:

      Definitely – those are the only ones I’ll use right now, they’re really sweet. I can’t wait for summer and the farmers markets to open again, I’ve had my fill of winter squash and carrots lately! haha

  9. I love these beautiful looking sandwiches my friend :D
