Cheese and tomatoes have always been a great combination in my eyes. And a grilled cheese sandwich is some of the easiest soul food I know. Here’s a little secret: put some drops of Kirsch (Kirschwasser) on the bread slices and it will taste just like cheese fondue.
GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH AND TOMATO SALAD
for 1 person
4 slices toast
some drops of Kirsch, optional
4 slices cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce | tamari
2 tablespoons olive oil
Take the toast slices out of the package and butter them all on one side. I like to keep toast packages in the freezer and I don’t bother thawing the slices – they will be heated enough later.
Now this is key – turn 2 slices over so that the butter is facing down. If you want to, you can now drizzle some drops of Kirschwasser onto the bread, then lay on some slices of cheese. Make sure they don’t go until the edge of the bread. Or you’ll have a big mess to clean up.
Lay on the other slices so that all buttered sides are facing outward.
Preheat your sandwich toaster and put them in for 2-4 min., depending how dark you like them.
While the sandwiches are toasting, let’s make a quick tomato salad. Just slice some cherry tomatoes in half.
And the super quick dressing: just 1 part balsamic vinegar, 1 part soy sauce, 2-3 parts olive oil. Done. OK, maybe a little bit of fresh ground pepper.
Mix in the tomatoes and you’re ready. Dinner for one in 5 minutes. Who could ask for more?
