Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • For the sandwiches: Prepare a grill for medium-high heat.

  • Assemble 4 sandwiches by spreading 2 tablespoons fig jam on 2 of the multigrain slices and 2 of the brioche slices, then adding 2 slices of cheese to each and another slice of the same bread. Spread the butter on both sides of the assembled sandwiches.

  • Place the sandwiches carefully onto the grates of the grill and grill on each side until the bread has grill marks and the cheese is melted, 5 minutes per side.

  • For the salad and dressing: Meanwhile, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, balsamic glaze, honey, salt, pepper and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the mixed greens, tomatoes and basil to the same bowl and toss to coat.

  • Serve each sandwich with a side of salad.
