  • Prepare ingredients for assembly. Spread 1 Tbsp. or so of mayo on 4 slices of bread. Spread 1 Tbsp. or so of Dijon honey mustard on the other 4 slice of gluten free bread (or any bread if not gluten free). Add desired amount of gluten free deli chicken breast to each sandwich along with 2 slices of Gouda cheese.
  • Assemble the sandwiches and spread desired amount of butter onto each piece of bread.
  • Heat a flat skillet to medium on the stove top. Add the sandwiches (2 at a time) to the skillet and heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until the cheese is melted and bread is golden brown.
  • For the spinach salad: Chop 2 cups of fresh spinach. Combine 2 Tbsp. olive oil, 1 Tbsp. vinegar, 2 Tbsp. Mezzetta Peperoncini brine, ½ tsp. sugar, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a small bowl. Whisk to emulsify. Add desired amount of dressing to the spinach.
  • Chop ½ cup or so of Mezzetta Peperoncini into small slices. Cut one large tomato into slices.
  • Remove the tops from the sandwiches once they are toasted. Add 2 tomato slices, a handful of dressed spinach, and desired amount of peperoncini to each sandwich. Return the top to each sandwich and cut in half. Serve immediately.

Add as much or as little of the dressing to the spinach as you like.
