You can almost imagine you are in Capri (the origin of the famous Caprese salad upon which these sandwiches are based) when you bite into these sandwiches. Scramble recipe tester Alexandra Taylor described them as “a mouth watering treat.” Scramble member Jennifer Larson recommends cutting them into 1-inch slices for an easy appetizer.
To make Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing: Whisk together 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1 tsp. superfine sugar (optional), and 1 tsp. minced herbs such as basil and mint. Add 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard, if desired. Refrigerate the extra dressing.
Do Ahead or Delegate: Slice and refrigerate the cheese, slice the tomatoes, prepare the vinaigrette if making your own, halve and slice the onion if using.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Add a thin layer of pesto to the sandwiches and use the optional onions.
Tip: Having a small herb garden is a wonderful way to have fresh seasonings right at your fingertips. Additionally, you can save quite a bit of money this way. Fresh herbs are generally very overpriced at the supermarket and you can often purchase a whole plant for less than a small package of herbs at the store. You can keep the summer flavors going all year by keeping growing herbs in a few small pots in a sunny window in your house.
