I’m stepping out of my usual ooey gooey, melty grilled cheese territory with this one! It’s a veggie packed, crunchy, creamy grilled cheese, and it’s delicious! A traditional greek salad, in sandwich form! Since feta is a more solid cheese, you don’t get that stringy meltyness from it when it heats up, instead it retains it’s shape for the most part, but gets extra creamy, which is equally delicious and a nice change! I was slightly concerned about how well the cucumbers would hold up under the heat (soggy cucumbers are gross!), but they remained crunchy, taking on a more pickle like crunch, rather than the cucumbers usual fresh crunch.
