Ingredients

  • 4 medium carrots
  • 6 sticks celery
  • 1 (8 oz) block mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup ranch dressing
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 8 slices whole grain bread
  • butter, unsalted

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry the fresh produce.
    • 4 medium carrots
    • 6 sticks celery
    • 2 tomatoes
  2. Peel, trim, and quarter carrots lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 3-inch long pieces; transfer to a plate.
  3. Trim and halve celery lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 3-inch long pieces; add to the plate with the carrot and set aside.
  4. Slice tomatoes crosswise into rounds.
  5. Thinly slice mozzarella.
    • 1 (8 oz) block mozzarella cheese
  6. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. While the skillet heats up, place the bread slices on a flat surface. Evenly spread each slice with pesto; layer half of the slices with tomato and mozzarella. Cover sandwiches with the remaining bread slices.
    • 8 slices whole grain bread
    • ½ cup sun-dried tomato pesto
  8. Once the skillet is hot, add butter and swirl to coat the bottom. Place sandwiches in the skillet and cook until the bottoms are golden brown, 2-4 minutes.
    • 4 tsp butter, unsalted
  9. Remove the sandwiches to a plate and add more butter to the skillet; return sandwiches to the skillet, browned-side up, and cook until golden brown on the other side and the cheese is melted, 2-4 minutes more. Once done, transfer to a cutting board and slice in half.
    • 4 tsp butter, unsalted
  10. Divide sandwiches and veggies between plates; serve with ranch for dipping. Enjoy!
    • ½ cup ranch dressing
