Total Time:
30 mins


  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 cup fresh baby spinach

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

  • 8 1/2-inch-thick slices sourdough bread

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ 3.5-4 ounce package garlic-and-herb goat cheese, softened

  • 1 small zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise

  • 1 tomato, sliced


  1. In a blender or food processor combine the mayonnaise, 1 cup of the spinach, the garlic, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

  2. Brush one side of each slice of bread with the olive oil; place, oiled side down, on waxed paper. Spread goat cheese on half of the slices; layer zucchini, tomato, and remaining spinach on top. Spread some of the spinach mayonnaise on remaining slices; place bread on top of vegetables, spread side down.

  3. Cook sandwiches in a very large skillet over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until bread is golden brown, turning once. Pass any remaining spinach mayonnaise.
