Instructions

PREP
1

Wash and dry all produce.* Cut cucumber into 1/4-inch rounds. Halve tomatoes. Cut four sections off nectarine, avoiding pit, then cut into 1/4-inch slices. Pick basil leaves from stems. Cut mozzarella into 1/4-inch slices, then season with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, add nectarine slices and 1 tbsp balsamic glaze (dbl for 4 ppl). Toss together.

MAKE DRESSINGS

In another small bowl, add mayo and pesto. Stir together. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 tbsp vinegar (dbl for 4 ppl), 1/2 tsp sugar (dbl for 4 ppl) and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with salt and pepper. Add tomatoes and cucumber. Toss together. Set aside.

ASSEMBLE SANDWICHES

Halve ciabatta buns, then evenly spread basil mayo onto all cut sides. Top bottom buns with mozzarella, nectarine mixture and half the basil leaves. Top with top bun.

GRILL SANDWICHES

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When pan is hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl). Swirl to melt butter. Add sandwiches. Sear, using a spatula to press down occasionally, until buns are golden-brown and cheese is melted, 4-5 min per side. (TIP: Cover with a lid for the last 1-2 min to help cheese melt!) (TIP: Depending on the size of your pan, you might need to cook in batches! Use 1 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp oil per batch.)
