Grilled caprese salad and tomatoes in the summertime. Is there anything better? Caprese salad is a year round favorite, but with fresh tomatoes and basil, it makes it even more difficult to pass on this time of the year. And as much as I love the traditional caprese, a few weekends ago I decided to try a different spin on the classic. Enter this grilled caprese salad.
A must-have summer food: grilled tomatoes
We have been using our grill a ton this summer. It’s such a quick and easy way to get dinner on the table. The other weekend, we were grilling and I decide to try the tomatoes on the grill. I figured the grill would give the tomatoes a different and unexpected flavor. Wouldn’t the melted mozzarella be amazing, too? Oh boy, was I right with that assumption! It didn’t take long to grill the tomatoes (about 4 minutes to be exact) but that little bit of time over the flame did wonders in bringing out the freshness and flavor of the vegetable. And the melted mozzarella took my love for caprese salads to a new level.
