Caprece Burger

This recipe is one of my all time favorites. A spin-off of the Caprece salad,  I threw this together one evening and almost impressed myself! 

Rich flavors of grilled onions, roasted garlic and fresh basil, it's like a meat salad with greater texture. 

If you're not a lover of basil, I like to recommend butter lettuce as another option. 

The melted mozzarella is just mild enough to allow the other flavors to shine through with its creamy goodness. 

I promise, this one won't disappoint!
