By Theresa Greco Classic grilled cheese meets the classic Italian antipasto for a new delizioso take on a beloved family-favorite recipe.


    1 large rustic round loaf of bread cut into 4 thick slices
    1 ball fresh mozzarella sliced 1/4 inch thick
    olive oil extra virgin
    2 large tomatoes chopped
    2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
    2 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    salt and pepper


  1. For the tomato salad topping, mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Allow to marinate a few minutes while sandwich is cooking.
  2. For the sandwich, heat a nonstick griddle or pan over medium heat. Evenly coat pan with olive oil.
  3. Drizzle olive oil on one side of all 4 slices of bread. Layer mozzarella rounds in an even layer on two of the slices. Top with the other two slices of bread oil side down.
  4. Place on griddle and cook until sandwich is golden brown on bottom, about 2-4 minutes. Carefully flip sandwich and cook on other side until golden brown and cheese is melted through.
  5. Remove from heat and cut into bruschetta slices. Top each piece with tomato salad and serve with extra tomato on the side.
