Pesto Caprese Grilled Sandwich Recipe

1 Servings

This recipe was inspired by a Caprese sandwich I had not too long ago at Panera Bread. After I had the delicious sandwich at Panera, I decided to come home and make my own Pesto Caprese Grilled Sandwich - and is now my new favorite grilled sandwich!

It's super easy to make and sure is tasty!!


Ingredients needed to make your Pesto Caprese Sandwich:

  • 2 slices of bread (I like whole grain or multigrain bread)
  • balsamic salad dressing
  • pesto (homemade or in a jar)
  • mozzerella cheese slices
  • beefsteak tomato
  • fresh organic field greens
  • quinoa and fresh asparagus (optional side)


Start by putting a thin layer of balsamic salad dressing on one piece of bread. Add on a healthy layer of basil pesto on the other piece of bread.

Add a slice or 2 of mozzarella cheese, fresh organic greens, and sliced tomato. Put it all together into a sandwich.

Butter the outside of the bread and grill in a pan on your stovetop until the outside is golden brown and the cheese is melting.

I chose to serve it with a side of plain quinoa with butter, salt, pepper and roasted fresh asparagus (450° for 10 min sprinkled with olive oil and salt.)
