Here’s a sandwich that takes everything good about caprese and combines it with everything good about grilled cheese–it’s a highbrow/lowbrow combo! This is one of the recipes from our Top Ten Sandwich & Salad Trends report.

To "chiffonaide" the basil simply means to cut or shred it finely, as though you were using it for a garnish.

  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chiffonaide

  • 8 slices fresh mozzarella
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • olive oil or butter as needed
