- Ciabatta panini
- Mixed greens (romaine lettuce and baby spinach)
- 1 tablespoon Irini Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Kalas Iodized Sea Salt (to taste)
- Pickled red onion
- Pickled carrots
- Diana Marinated Quartered Artichokes
- Pilaros Fire Roasted Red Peppers (sliced)
- 1 slice Nafsika’s Garden Swiss Cheese Style
Greens with a Twist: In a small bowl, combine the mixed greens with Irini Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a pinch of Kalas Iodized Sea Salt. Toss the greens until they are well coated with the olive oil and salt mixture. Set them aside; they'll bring a refreshing crunch to your panini.
Prepping the Ciabatta: Slice the ciabatta panini in half lengthwise. Now, it's time to layer on the flavours. Spread a generous layer of pesto on one side of the ciabatta. This aromatic sauce will infuse each bite with a burst of herbaceous goodness.
Layering Perfection: Begin with a bed of fresh greens over the pesto-covered half. The combination of romaine lettuce and baby spinach will provide both crispness and tenderness to your panini.
Zesty Crunch: Next, add the pickled red onions and carrots. Their tangy and slightly sweet flavours will provide a delightful contrast to the pesto and greens.
Mediterranean Twist: Now, it's time to introduce the Mediterranean charm. Layer on the Diana Marinated Quartered Artichokes, each one packed with savoury goodness, and the Pilaros Fire Roasted Red Peppers, which bring smoky and slightly sweet notes to the mix.
Creamy Indulgence: Top off your creation with a single slice of Nafsika’s Garden Swiss Cheese Style. This adds a creamy, melty component that melds everything together.
Sealing the Deal: Close the sandwich with the other half of the ciabatta panini. Since this panini is generously filled, it's a good idea to wrap it up tightly in parchment paper. This not only keeps everything together but also prevents any delicious fillings from escaping while you savour every bite.
Slice and Savour: When you're ready to enjoy, simply slice through the parchment paper and the sandwich. Each bite reveals a symphony of flavours, from the vibrant greens to the tangy pickled elements, all harmonizing beautifully with the rich pesto and creamy Swiss cheese.
The Ciabatta Panini is more than just a sandwich; it's a culinary journey that takes your taste buds on an adventure. With every layer carefully crafted, this panini is a delightful medley of tastes and textures that transforms a simple meal into an exquisite experience.
