If I ever have the option of choosing a Greek sandwich, or a Greek salad, or a Greek pasta, I probably do. And the reason is because the dish often contains feta, which I adore. I know some people don’t care for it (crazy!), but I’m a fan. Today I made a simple tomato and cheese panini, Greek style!
Above is the sandwich assembled before cooking. On your bread, place a couple of slices of tomato. Sprinkle with some Kosher salt. On top of the tomatoes, place three or four fresh leaves of basil. On top of the basil, spoon as much or as little feta cheese as you would like. (The feta doesn’t melt completely, but becomes nice and soft.) Top with another slice of bread. On the outer sides of both pieces of bread, brush with olive oil. Grill until golden.
In my opinion, this sandwich was perfection. (You can always click on each image for a larger view.)
