Caprese salad is always one of favorites. Quick, easy and delicious. Expanded the salad to this caprese grilled cheese sandwich by adding a little bit jalapeno, it was super tasty. Ozzy cheese, juicy yet sweet tomatoes, and nutty basil pesto were layered over the bread. After grilling in the pan, the bread was golden, brown and crispy with the warm fillings inside. Too delicious to stop eating after the first bite, loved it so much.
