Grilled Panini with Mozzarella, Grapes and Arugula

Additional Recipes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups arugula leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Eight 1/2-inch thick slices of whole-grain crusty bread (about 1 1/4 ounces each)
  • 1 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup red and/or black seedless California grapes, halved
  • 16 small or 8 large basil leaves
  • Cooking spray

    Directions

    Place the arugula in a medium bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of the oil, the balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and toss to coat.

    On each of four of the slices of bread layer ΒΌ cup of the cheese, then some halved grapes, then 4 small or 2 large basil leaves and finally about 1/2 cup of the arugula. Top each with the remaining slices of bread and brush both the outsides of each sandwich lightly with the oil.

    Heat a medium-sized heavy cast-iron skillet or other skillet over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Place 2 sandwiches in the skillet and weigh them down with another heavy skillet with a full can placed on top or a panini weight. Toast until the cheese begins to melt and the bread is browned and toasted on the edges, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the sandwiches and toast for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and slice in half; repeat with the remaining 2 sandwiches.
