An Open Faced Sandwich of Kasseri, Spinach and Pomegranate

By • November 29, 2012 • 4 Comments



Author Notes: I'll admit this is the first time I have ever made anything with pomegranate or pomegranate molasses, but this little sandwich with melted kasseri cheese, spinach and a sweet/tart pomegranate vinaigrette was extremely satisfying. inpatskitchen

Makes one sandwich

For the pomegranate vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  1. In a small bowl, whisk all the ingredients together and set aside.

For the sandwich

  • 1 slice French or Italian bread, toasted (cut about 3/4 inch thick)
  • 1/2 cup grated kasseri cheese
  • Around 10 baby spinach leaves
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate arils
  • The previously made vinaigrette
  1. Pile the grated kasseri on the toasted bread slice and place on a baking sheet in a preheated 350F oven until the cheese melts completely (around 5 to 8 minutes)
  2. Place the spinach leaves over the cheese, drizzle with a spoonful or two of the vinaigrette and scatter the pomegranate arils over.
