Recipe: Copycat Tom + Chee Grilled Cheese Salad

I'm a big fan of Shark Tank - I watch it all the time and get super excited when a local place is on! A couple years ago Tom + Chee was on - they're a grilled cheese restaurant - and they're delicious! 

I have loved the Grilled Cheese Salad at Tom + Chee for years and I finally decided to make it myself. It's so simple and delicious! Tom + Chee was seen on Shark Tank a few years back and has become a big chain - and this is one of their best ideas! This takes croutons to the NEXT level! #grilledcheese #salad

I love getting their Grilled Cheese Salad! It's a salad loaded up with lots of vegetables and then it's topped off with Grilled Cheese Croutons! Crunchy, cheesy, light and refreshing - this dish is amazing!

First off - you've got a great salad here! It's crisp romaine lettuce topped with all my favorite vegetables: cucumber, carrots, bell pepper, red onion and mushrooms. 

The carrots were fun too - I used a vegetable peeler length-wise on the carrot and made these super thin shaved carrot slices! 

How to make Grilled Cheese in the Air Fryer

It's super easy to make Grilled Cheese in the air fryer! You do it just like you do in a pan! Butter the outside of the bread - layer it in the air fryer and you're done! Set it to 350 degrees and go for 2-3 minutes - flip and do 2-3 minutes more. It doesn't brown as much - but it's much less greasy!

Once you have your grilled cheese done, you chop it into pieces and top your salad with it! I only used a half sandwich on each salad and it was plenty! 

The other thing I love about this is grated cheese often times gets lost in a salad and you can't even taste it. This way you really taste the cheese and the croutons are fresh! It's melty and crunchy deliciousness!

This Grilled Cheese Salad is a full meal - I didn't even add anything to it - other than RANCH dressing! (My favorite is Litehouse Ranch.) But you sure can top it with bacon, chicken or both! 

I know you're going to LOVE this Grilled Cheese Salad as much as I do!
