Panini With Vermont Sharp White Cheddar & Homemade Pickled

The pickled vegetables need to be made a day in advance, but otherwise, this recipe is simple—and you can use the extra pickled vegetables throughout the week.

Ingredients For 2 Panini

  • 1/2 cup sliced cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onions
  • 1/2 cup sliced radishes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup red wine vinegar
  • 4 slices ciabatta bread or substitute 8 large slices rustic Italian bread
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 slices sharp Cheddar cheese, preferably Vermont sharp white Cheddar


  1. Place cucumbers, red onions and radishes in a jar with water and red wine vinegar to completely cover the vegetables. Put in refrigerator with lid on and let sit for 24 hours. Prepare one day in advance.*
  2. Take pickled vegetables out after 24 hours and drain. Place spoonful of veggies on bread and add salt and pepper.
  3. Cover generously with 2 or 3 slices of cheese. Grill 3-5 minutes until golden brown and cheese is melted.

*TIP: You can pickle a lot of vegetables at once and use them throughout the week, with sandwiches or omelets, as garnishes with meats and seafood and as healthy snacks. So, feel free to multiply this recipe and pickle lots of veggies.
