I love these Grilled Zucchini Caprese Stacks with Basil Vinaigrette, and when summer foods are at their peak I savor every bite of the grilled zucchini, fresh Mozzarella, tomato, and basil vinaigrette. Use Tomato Recipes to find more recipes like this one.
The Fourth of July is the time when summer garden foods are just starting to come into season in Utah, and if you’ve looked around the summer archives in this blog you know how I love that summer produce. There are some recipes that just symbolize summer for me, and Grilled Zucchini, Basil Vinaigrette, and Caprese Salad are summer standbys that I’ve been making for years.
So when I had the idea for Grilled Zucchini Caprese Stacks that combined all those summer favorites into stacks of grilled zucchini with thick slices of ripe tomato and creamy fresh Mozzarella, drizzled with basil vinaigrette, I knew it had to be a winner. I first posted this recipe in 2013, but now my blog has so many new followers who probably haven’t seen it that I thought it was the perfect summer treat to spotlight for the Fourth of July 2019!
If you have fresh garden tomatoes and want something that will really impress your friends, you must make this as soon as you have zucchini and fresh garden tomatoes! This would be perfect as a side dish with something like Very Greek Grilled Chicken for a summer dinner. No matter what’s on the menu at your house for the Fourth of July, I hope you have a great holiday if you’re celebrating.
