Ingredients


Grilled cheese:
1 rustic ciabatta bread
1/2 cup (125 mL) extra virgin olive oil
8 oz (240 g) Canadian Swiss, sliced
9 oz (270 g) smoked ham or 
Black Forest ham, thinly sliced
1 bunch arugula leaves
Cracked black pepper, to taste

Tapenade:
2 oz (60 g) sun dried tomatoes, soaked
1 oz (30 g) Kalamata olives
1/2 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp + 2 tsp (40 ml) olive oil
1 tbsp capers, drained and chopped
2 tbsp Canadian Parmesan, grated

Preparation

Tapenade:
Chop together tomatoes, olives, garlic and capers. Slowly add olive oil, stir in Canadian Parmesan and finish seasoning with fresh pepper. Set tapenade aside.

Preheat barbecue to low heat.

Grilled Cheese:
Slice ciabatta bread straight across into round disks approximately 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick. Assemble each sandwich with Canadian Swiss, ham and arugula leaves. Lightly brush both sides of ciabatta bread with olive oil. Lightly grill each side of sandwich over very low heat. Remove from grill and place on platters with 1 tsp (5 mL) of tapenade on top.

Tips

Tapenade can be made up to 1 week ahead and may be served on top or on the side. You could also use prosciutto to replace the ham.
