Grilled Caprese, a new twist on this Italian Classic!
The crisp smoky taste of the grilled tomato paired with the warm, vivid taste of the Fresh Mozzarella is sure to be a hit with everyone.
Combine 4 cups fresh basil and 2 cups olive oil in a food processor and mix until smooth.
In a saucepan, simmer olive oil and basil puree over medium heat for 1 minute.
Strain mixture through cheesecloth into a bowl.
Let the mixture sit 1-2 hours.
Pour infused oil into a jar and seal if not used right away.
Heat grill to medium. Oil the grill grate.
Brush tops of tomatoes with olive oil and salt to taste.
Grill 3-4 minutes on each side (until you see grill marks).
Layer Galbani® Fresh Mozzarella, tomato, and fresh basil on serving plate.
Drizzle with basil-infused olive oil.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Garnish and server with remaining fresh basil.
Add some spice! Slice a few peppers and grill those along with the tomatoes. Add a few pieces of sliced pepper with the tomatoes to add even more flavor and color.
