Cosmic Crisp® Apple Caprese Sandwich


  • 4 slices ciabatta bread
  • olive oil or butter
  • 1 garlic clove, halved
  • 1 Cosmic Crisp® Apple, sliced thin, about 4-5 slices per sandwich
  • 6-8 tomato slices, about 3-4 slices per sandwich
  • salt and pepper
  • 4-6 slices mozzarella cheese, about 2-3 slices per sandwich
  • balsamic glaze to drizzle
  • 2 handfuls fresh basil


  1. Drizzle olive oil or spread butter on each piece of ciabatta bread. On medium heat in a large frying pan, toast the 4 slices of bread until golden. Remove the bread from the heat and rub each slice with a garlic clove half to impart some garlic flavour. Set aside.
  2. To make one sandwich, layer 4-5 apple slices on the bottom layer of the bread, followed by 3-4 tomato slices with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Then, layer 2-3 mozzarella slices and drizzle the balsamic glaze over the cheese. Finally, finish by adding a handful of basil and top with a final piece of ciabatta bread. Repeat to make the second sandwich.


This sandwich is delicious on ciabatta bread BUT can be made with any bread that suits your tastes including gluten-free bread!

Same goes for the cheese; if you need to use dairy-free cheese go right ahead.
