Taste of Summer Caprese Melts

These are great any time of year, but with home grown basil and tomatoes they are so much better tasting! Grill or broil so that the bread is golden brown on each side.

I used fresh basil and tomatoes from the garden. This recipe certainly lives up to the name.

Caprese is one of my favorite salads and now I can have something a little heartier with the same great flavor! Love, love, love this simple recipe. I might add a sprinkling of basalmic vinegar next time but this is great as written. Thanks for posting!
