The fresh flavors in this Grilled Zucchini Caprese Sandwich recipe will leave you wanting more. One online reviewer claims, "These sandwiches came together quickly and won over the crowd. The zucchini was so flavorful with the garlic and oil. I wouldn't make any changes to the recipe! (served with chips and fresh veggies for lunch)"

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large grill pan over medium-high heat. Place zucchini in a shallow dish. Add 2 teaspoons oil and garlic; toss to coat. Arrange zucchini in grill pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until grill marks appear. Cut each zucchini piece in half crosswise. Return zucchini to shallow dish. Drizzle with vinegar. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper.

Step 2

Brush bottom halves of rolls with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Top evenly with zucchini, basil, tomatoes, and mozzarella.

Step 3

Brush cut side of roll tops with remaining liquid from shallow dish, and place on sandwiches. Heat the sandwiches in pan until warm.

Adored these sandwiches! Great weekend to try out since the farmer's market is back for the summer and I had some great zucchini, yellow tomatoes and beautiful basil. A few changes: 1) added 1/2 of a grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast seasoned with italian seasoning and sliced to each sandwich; 2) brushed both sides of our rolls (not ciabatta, just what looked good fresh at the store) with olive oil and grilled till toasted; then while still warm, rub the cut side of a fresh garlic clove over each bun half vigorously (then you don't have to lose the garlic flavor with the minced on the zucchini). Assembled all ingredients as directed and enjoyed - great flavors, really filling and a wonderful summertime recipe. Will absolutely make these again & again; enjoy!

Good in theory, but kind of bland in practice. I added more balsamic at the end. Still just "ok", for all of the great ingredients going into it. Also added fresh spinach after it was cooked.

Great sandwich. I soaked the ciabatta roll in the vinegar rather than just brush, as I wanted more balsamic flavor, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Will definitely make again.

was good, but has potential to be more flavorful. I think I may use focaccia bread next time as some one else suggested and maybe add more of the filling.
