Capresedillanini

A what? It’s a cross between the caprese salad, a quesadilla and a panini. And it’s AWESOME!

Do you know what else is awesome? Going to a White Sox game with your coworkers:

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole wheat tortilla
  • fresh mozzarella
  • 1 home-grown tomato
  • fresh basil
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper

I essentially make a caprese salad down the center of a tortilla.

Just layer slices of tomato with slices of fresh mozzarella. Add basil and salt and pepper.

Then I folded the rest of the tortilla over it. I put it in a hot skillet with a little oil to make it hot and crispy and melty. I put a heavy plate on top of it in the pan to help press it down.

After a few minutes, I flipped it over(be careful, the plate will be hot) and put the plate back on top of it for a few more minutes.

Slice and eat. I had it with a side of berries.

It was the ultimate summer meal. The tomato was from my garden and the basil was out of my living room. Yum.
