We love a good grilled veggie recipe. Grilling adds a unique flavor to fresh ingredients, making an ordinary meal transform into something special. Classic caprese salad typically features raw red tomatoes. However, we’re changing things up by throwing green tomatoes on the grill! It’s a simple hack that takes a seasonal veggie to the next level.
Get started with this recipe by slicing up three green tomatoes into quarter-inch slices. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, then grill the tomato slices for about two to three minutes per side. The tomatoes should have grill marks and appear slightly soft yet still firm. Layer the green tomato slices on a plate, alternating with fresh slices of mozzarella cheese.
Caprese salad isn’t complete without balsamic! Mix together a two-ingredient balsamic vinegar dressing by combining one tablespoon of olive oil with one tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar. Drizzle it over the salad plate and finally garnish with black pepper and chopped fresh basil.
