  • Summary

    It's hard to improve on grilled cheese with tomato soup—but that's exactly what the folks at Noca are doing. The restaurant layers red heirloom tomatoes and smoked mozzarella on the sandwich. It transforms the soup with green heirlooms—and serves it cold. The mix of flavors, textures, and colors takes this classic to a new level.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound ripe green heirloom tomatoes, cored, cut into large chunks
    • 1 6-inch piece unpeeled English hothouse cucumber, diced
    • 1/2 cup chopped onion
    • 1/2 cup chopped celery
    • 1/2 cup salted roasted Marcona almonds
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 large garlic cloves, peeled
    • 1 tablespoon Champagne vinegar or other white wine vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon (or more) coarse kosher salt
    • 8 1/3-inch-thick slices brioche or challah, trimmed to 5x3 inches
    • 1 8-ounce package smoked mozzarella cheese, cut into 1-inch-wide by 1/8-inch-thick slices
    • 2 large heirloom tomatoes (preferably Brandywine), cut into 1/4-inch slices
    • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
