An Open Faced Sandwich of Kasseri, Spinach and Pomegranate

November 29, 2012

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.


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

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
