  • Meantime, toast bread and cut into large bite sized pieces. Set aside.
    1 large thick slice of crusty bread
  • Add greens plus red wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon butter. Cook about 5 minutes for most cruciferous greens. If using spinach, add during end of cooking time as this will just need to wilt a minute or two. Gently mix in the toasted bread pieces then lay cheese slices over top all and cover for a couple of minutes or until cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
