I'm a sucker for anything with this combo: fresh mozzarella, basil, and tomato. If anything on any menu has those ingredients, I'm ordering it. Usually I'm not disappointed.
I was planning a menu for a dinner party the other night and wanted something light, refreshing, and VERY tasty. My husband and I are huge sandwich fans and use our George Foreman Grill to toast our sandwiches almost weekly. So between my love for sandwiches and the ease of using the Foreman Grill, I decided to makes paninis. Now, what to put on the sandwiches? Here is what I came up with. You won't be surprised by some of the ingredients:
- Thick, soft bread (I used Italian)
- Organic spinach
- Fresh mozzarella (surprised?)
- Deli turkey (fat-free)
- Sun-dried tomatoes (surprised again!)
- Dried basil (surprise #3)
- I usually prefer fresh basil, but I wanted to use what I already had at home.
Layer everything between your bread and toast on the Foreman grill (or any other way you prefer).
Viola!! I served them with grapes, strawberries, pineapple, and tea. So tasty, so refreshing, and very light. No steak and potatoes here : )
