Caprese Salad Sandwiches

Recipe by  

"Everyone knows there's no salad like a Caprese salad on a hot summer day. Fresh-picked basil and tomatoes with just a hint of seasoning. I always use a whole spelt loaf when I make this recipe. The notes of the spelt combine perfectly with the light/summery flavors of the other ingredients. Very earthy. Also, fresh ground pepper and chunky sea salt make this dish pop even more. Muah!"

I think the bread needs to be toasted with the truffle oil. Some balsamic glaze would be good too.

Based on the reviewer's suggestions above, I made a couple changes. Instead of using two slices of bread, I made them open faced. And I toasted the bread after applying the olive oil but before putting on the cheese, tomato and basil. They were really good. I usually make caprese salads with balsamic; the truffle oil was a nice change of pace.

I love this combination of flavors and so does everyone I make this for. I make it as more of an open-faced sandwich and use Italian bread which I toast for a few minutes on each side before I put the mozzarella, tomato, and basil on top.
