Panini with Gorgonzola and Greens
A deliciously simple, pressed Italian sandwich with creamy gorgonzola and classic Italian salad greens.
1/2 cup each: escarole, endive and radicchio leaves, thinly sliced
1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons imported red wine vinegar
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 slices crusty country bread, white or mild whole wheat
2 ounces Gorgonzola, softened at room temperature
- Place the greens in a small bowl and dress with oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. (Remember Gorgonzola is salty so go easy on the salt.) Toss well.
- Spread 2 slices of bread with Gorgonzola. Top with greens and drizzle with any dressing left in the bowl. Cover with the remaining bread and press down lightly.
Makes 2 panini.
