Servings 4 people


  • Fresh Express Spring Mix
  • 4 slices sprouted-whole grain bread (or whole wheat bread)
  • 4 slices of reduced-fat cheddar (4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in extra virgin olive oil drained and rinsed, sliced
  • Spray butter


  • Place two slices of cheese on a slice of bread. Top cheese with another slice of bread to form a sandwich. Repeat to form another sandwich.
  • Spray both outer slices with spray butter.
  • Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add sandwich. Cook until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes, and then flip and cook another 3-5 minutes.
  • When finished, carefully place the grilled cheese on a cutting board and let it rest for approximately 5 minutes.
  • Carefully cut off the crust. Discard the crust and cut the grilled cheese into large dices (the size of a crouton).
  • Place greens and sundried tomatoes in a bowl and toss with vinaigrette.
  • When dressing is fully incorporated, portion into 4 salad bowls. Top each salad with grilled cheese croutons.
