Step up your sandwich game with this Mediterranean Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Tomatoes, feta cheese, onions, kale, and olives combine to form this healthy and filling sandwich.
If you love mediterranean flavors, you'll die over this mediterranean grilled cheese sandwich. It's such a fun way to switch up your sandwich game and it's loaded with VEGGIES and yes cheese too, but VEGGIES which basically makes it healthy. I mean, right?
Growing up, grilled cheese sandwiches were my go-to after school snack or weekend lunch. They were simple, filling and oh-so-cheesy. I liked making them on my own, but I especially enjoyed when my mom would make me one because mom food is the best food, even when it is just a simple grilled cheese. However, plain grilled cheese can get a bit boring after awhile, so I thought I’d spruce things up a bit with this grilled cheese filled with mediterranean flavors.
Mediterranean flavors are kind of the best aren’t they? When I think ‘mediterranean’, I automatically think of salads. I have NO idea why, because this flavor combination can be used in many different food forms, including sandwiches.
- red onion
- black olives
In most cases, the cheese is the highlight of a grilled cheese sandwich, but not this one! I'd say this one is special because of all of the other ingredients. Besides cheese, it includes tomatoes and kale and onion and California Black Ripe Olives. Why have JUST cheese when you could have all of that other fun stuff too? These add-ins make the sandwich healthier, more filling, filled with nutrients, even more flavorful, and the best part is that it’s just as simple. There are few things in life I enjoy more than a simple sandwich recipe.
This sandwich is:
- Still considered comfort food
- Only 7 ingredients if you include the bread & butter
I’d say it’s kind of a must-make, wouldn’t you?
And here's a cool fact about olives, so listen up! California black ripe olives are as good as they taste and contain Vitamin E, iron, Vitamin K, and fiber. They are packaged at their peak to preserve nutrients for year-round enjoyment. Who knew?! I didn’t. Olives are good tasting but they’re also good for you. Besides sandwiches, you could easily add them into salads, soups or casseroles.
