Food & Wine's senior recipe developer, Grace Parisi, is a Test Kitchen superstar. In this series, she shares some of her favorite recipes to make right now.

Burgers are great, pesto is great, tomatoes are great, and mozzarella is great. So, it stands to reason that if you cram them all together, the result would also be great. And it is! My favorite light summer meal is a caprese salad—one thing both of my kids make really well. This version on a bun with meat and pesto is not as light, but it's super-summery and quite delicious! And a great way to use up lots of abundant basil. SEE RECIPE »
