Grilled Cheese with Pea Shoots

Pea shoots wilt down quite a bit when cooked, so they’re not terribly practical as a side dish unto themselves. But when you need some fresh greens to balance out an indulgent grilled cheese, they’re perfect.

This was actually the first time I spread mayo on the outside of my grilled cheese bread. Usually I’m a butter girl. But it does create a nice crunchy crust. I can’t say it makes a huge difference though, so go with your preference.
