Pico De Gallo Grilled Cheese Sandwich


This is a great sandwich that I randomly decided to make with some left over pico de gallo from a taco dinner I made the night before. This is vegetarian and makes a tasty lunch. A good side dish would be tomato soup.

Pico de Gallo:

  • 1 tomato, diced

  • ½ white onion, diced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, or to taste (Optional)

  • ½ lime, juiced

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  • 3 tablespoons softened butter, or as needed

  • 10 slices white bread

  • 10 slices provolone cheese


  1. Mix tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper together in a bowl.

  2. Spread butter onto 1 side of each bread slice. Arrange bread, butter-side down, onto a work surface. Place 1 slice provolone cheese onto each bread slice and spoon pico de gallo onto 5 of the bread-cheese slices. Top each pico de gallo layer with remaining bread-cheese slices, butter-side up.

  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Grill each sandwich in the hot skillet until golden brown and cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
