Wednesday: Caprese Subs and Corn on the Cob
The Caprese is a classic combo that works on its own, on a pizza, in a pasta and now in a sub. Be sure to soak the bread a bit in the vinegar dressing. As a matter of fact, these can be made ahead, wrapped tightly and served - I think they are even better that way.

4 ripe tomatoes
1 lb fresh mozzarella in water

Using a large spoon, generously drizzle the dressing over each piece of bread.

Add corn to boiling water and cook for 6-8 minutes.
