Grilled Havarti and Tomato on Kalamata Olive Bread

Grilled Havarti and Tomato on Kalamata Olive BreadI made this sandwich for my kids’ lunch and couldn’t help myself from sneaking a bite… it was so good! I loved the creamy cheese with the crisp and tangy bread and the sweet tomatoes – it was a wonderful combination of flavors and textures. Both of my kids loved the sandwich and gobbled it right up.

  36. This looks so good – I really love the idea of using olive bread for some extra flavor/texture. I actually work with Dofino cheese which makes a great havarti. We’ve got some nice sandwich recipes on our site, and for our next recipe, I think we should take some inspiration from here and play with different kinds of bread!
