Strawberry Grilled Cheese

Savory Strawberries

I’m starting to see strawberries everywhere; fresh in the market and lovely pictures of strawberry recipes – and not just in desserts. They are sweet and very dessert looking to me so it took me a long time to accept the fact that their flavor could be infused any other way. What an idiot I was, there are so many savory ways to use their flavor. Many times, I have had Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette. Strawberries go really well with red onions, either fresh or sauteed. They go very well with feta and gruyere and brie. Sprinkle sliced strawberries over roasted chicken and drizzle with a good olive oil or balsamic vinegar. Try adding them to arugula or making a sauce with mint for chicken or fish.

Strawberry Grilled Cheese

2 slices sourdough
1 handful grated gruyere
sauteed red onion
4 medium strawberries, sliced

Butter sourdough slices and place on hot grill. Add the gruyere, some red onion – to your liking and then add the strawberries. Grill until cheese is fully melted and the bread is golden toasted.
