This creative sandwich takes its inspiration from an Italian salad. Basil mayonnaise and fresh mozzarella cheese give the classic BLT an Italian twist.
Why This Recipe Works
We infused this Caprese BLT recipe with fresh flavor using a basil spread made of basil, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, and hot sauce. Sprinkling the sliced tomatoes with salt drew out their liquid and concentrated their flavor, ensuring the Caprese BLT didn’t become soggy.
