1/2 cup finely grated low-fat mozzarella

2/3 cup plain nonfat Greek-style yogurt

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 green pepper, finely chopped

1/2 red pepper, finely chopped  

1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped

8 slices whole wheat bread

1 medium tomato, thinly sliced

Nonstick cooking spray


  1. In a medium bowl, add the Cheddar, mozzarella, yogurt, chives, salt and pepper, green and red peppers and jalapeno. Stir well to combine. Spread the mixture evenly among 4 slices of bread and top with a couple of slices of tomato. Top with the remaining slices of bread.
