This Grilled Vegetable Caprese Salad makes the perfect appetizer, side dish, or main course. It's packed with fresh veggies, smoky grilled tomatoes, and tons of fresh mozzarella and basil.
I just can't stop grilling vegetables. Pretty much every night I find myself carrying a basket of whatever veggies we have on hand out to grill for a quick side dish or salad. I just love them and always make extras for leftovers the next day. They make the most delicious salads, sandwiches, and quesadillas. So you can imagine my excitement the other day when it dawned on me to use my leftover grilled veggies in my other favorite summer dish, a caprese salad. So so good. Slightly charred zucchini and summer squash with smoky grilled tomatoes, plenty of mozzarella and basil, and a quick drizzle of balsamic vinegar - I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.
