This take on mozzarella Caprese has grilled tomatoes with olives and mozzarella. Grilling the tomatoes really brings out their flavor, while salty olives balance the sweetness. The warmth from the tomatoes slightly softens the mozzarella for the perfect tender bite. It’s the best addition to any summer meal!
Grilled Tomatoes with Olives and Mozzarella
- In a small bowl, mix together the olives, basil, and olive oil. Set aside.
- Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Lay out the tomato and cheese slices and season on all sides with the salt and olive oil. Place the tomato slices on the preheated grill and grill for about 2 minutes per side or until the edges are beginning to brown.
- Transfer the tomatoes from the grill to a platter and while still hot, shingle with the mozzarella cheese slices to warm and soften the cheese. Spoon the olive mixture over the top and serve.
