Pesto Caprese Grilled Sandwich Recipe


  • 2 slices of bread – whole wheat or multigrain
  • balsamic salad dressing
  • pesto (homemade or out of a jar)
  • mozzerella cheese slices
  • beefsteak tomato – sliced
  • fresh organic field greens
  • quinoa and fresh asparagus (optional side)


  1. Start by putting a thin layer of balsamic salad dressing on one piece of bread. Add on a healthy layer of basil pesto on the other piece of bread.
  2. Add a slice or 2 of mozzarella cheese, fresh organic greens, and sliced tomato. Put it all together into a sandwich.
  3. Butter the outside of the bread and grill in a pan on your stovetop until the outside is golden brown and the cheese is melted. While one side is toasting, you can add the butter to the other side.
  4. I chose to serve it with a side of plain quinoa with butter, slat, pepper and roasted fresh asparagus (450 for 10 min sprinkled with olive oil and salt.)
