Strawberry Avocado Grilled Cheese

When  first saw this recipe pop up on one of the blogs I follow, I was skeptical. Fruit and avocados on grilled cheese? Meh. I floated the idea by a few coworkers who looked at my like I’d lost my mind.

However, my curiosity won out and last Tuesday night I found myself whipping this up for dinner.

It was surprisingly good! The avocado was buttery and creamy, the strawberries were sweet, and it was all held together by creamy, melty reduced-fat provolone cheese. Mmm. Plus, it’s grilled cheese which means it took all of 5 minutes to throw together and I only had one dirty pan. Win!

I found myself recreating this sandwich at least 4 times in the past two weeks (not grilled, but on bread and in wraps). It’s the sweet-salty combo that I love and highlights to of my favorite fruits. With a lightly dressed arugula salad on the side, this is a perfect meal.

I hope you will give this a try – if you like strawberries and avocado, I assure you it will not disappoint. I’m already dreaming up other sweet-savory grilled cheese combos to try in the future…
