I’ve been around enough cheese platters to know that apple + cheddar + ham is a very good thing. So way not put it on a baguette and call it a day? Combined with a bright and zesty apple mustard slaw, this sandwich is a delicious and unexpected dish.
INGREDIENTS (APPLE SLAW)
this makes about 6 servings
3 large tart apples (like pink ladies), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons shallot, finely chopped
2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 lb sliced ham
2 slices cheddar cheese
1 large baguette, maybe 2, halved and sliced into whatever size you want your sandwiches to be
1 bunch arugula
Preheat oven at 400 F. For the apple salad, mix everything together in a small bowl. I used my hands to distribute the mustard evenly. I must use this on a cheese platter, I’m obsessed. Anyway, to assemble the sandwiches, lightly toast the baguette with the cheese and ham on top, in the oven until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasty. Drizzle with a little olive oil and dress the top half with the arugula and the bottom half with the apple salad. Enjoy!
