“I wanted a toasted cheese sandwich for lunch today, and not having anything to go with the cheese thought I'd try adding salsa. While hardly gourmet, it was quick and easy to make and very tasty. I used white bread as it crisps well, and recommend a fairly thin layer of salsa as too much could result in the sandwich being overly salty. Make sure the heat isn't too high so that the cheese has a chance to melt and the ingredients can heat through before the outside of the sandwich is cooked.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices white bread
  • butter
  • 2 slices vegetarian swiss cheese
  • salsa


  1. Heat skillet on stove top over low-medium heat.
  2. Butter two slices of bread - I used a spread - place a slice of cheese on each half, then spread both slices with a thin layer of salsa. Join halves to make a sandwich.
  3. Melt some butter in the skillet then place sandwich in and let it cook until crisp and browned, turning as necessary.
