The Caprese Sandwich just may be the freshest, easiest and lightest sandwich to construct. The bread is as important as the fresh mozzarella and the basil and tomato.    I honestly would not have considered making this sandwich without fresh tomato and basil.  I mean I know I say da Giulia Tomato Basil can replace Fresh Tomatoes and basil in most recipes, but I think there are some exceptions, this sandwich being one of them.  I just think the sweet, juicy and firm texture compliments the soft texture of the fresh mozzarella and the fresh basil gives the sandwich the fresh from the garden flavor.  I needed to stick to my challenge to da Giulia sauce everyday of the week, and I didn’t want to make to things tonight and I needed to used the mozzarella up because I had bought it earlier in week for a pasta and I had some leftover, and I don’t waste! So I made the sandwiches in about 5 minutes, and 10 minutes later the sandwiches were nothing but a crumb.  My family swooped in and gobbled them up.  No one mentioned the chunky tomato in the Caprese instead of fresh and more importantly the sandwich was healthy, clean and light!
