Grilled Caprese Salad

There's nothing like a summer tomato. Here, they're layered with mozzarella and warmed on the grill. This vertical Caprese salad is all ooey gooey goodness. Served with a simple basil sauce, this salad is summer on a fork.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

Purée basil, ⅓ cup oil, vinegar, and Parmesan in a food processor; season with salt and pepper.

Coat tomato slices with remaining oil (about 3 Tbsp.) and season with salt and pepper. Grill tomatoes, covered, 1 minute, then flip (do not flip the tops). Arrange cheese on flipped tomato slices and grill until it begins to melt, 1–2 more minutes. Assemble stacks with 2 cheese-topped slices and 1 top; serve with basil sauce.
