Fresh summer zucchini sandwich with creamy goat cheese and a sweet and tangy balsamic reduction.
For the pesto:
Combine sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, basil, avocado, olive oil and salt and pepper in a food processor and pulse until combined. Set aside.
For the panini:
Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium high. Spray with cooking spray and layer zucchini slices on. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side depending how thick the slices are. You want them cooked through with grill marks but still retaining a slight bite to them. Remove zucchini from grill and set aside.
Spread goat cheese on two of the slices of bread—one piece of bread for each sandwich. Spread pesto on the other piece of bread for each sandwich. Layer zucchini and tomatoes on top of one slice of bread and cover with the remaining slice (pesto or cheese side in).
Place sandwiches on a heated panini press and cook/press for about 5 minutes until goat cheese starts to melt.
While panini cooks, heat a small sauce pan with balsamic vinegar to medium. Simmer and cook until reduced and vinegar becomes thick and syrup-like. It should just start sticking to a spoon when ready.
Remove panini from press and drizzle balsamic reduction on top or use it as a dip in a small side bowl.
