For each sandwich:

  • 2 slices sourdough or thick rustic bread
  • 2 oz. chevré soft goat cheese
  • 5-6 slices of apple about a quarter of a large one
  • 2-3 slices prosciutto or ham
  • about 1/2 cup of arugula
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt to taste


  • Toast the bread and top one slice with goat cheese. Allow to sit for a minute or two so the goat cheese softens. Spread goat cheese onto the bread.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, and salt in a small bowl. Add the arugula and toss to coat.
  • Add the apple slices on top of the cheese, topped with the prosciutto, then the arugula.
  • Top with the remaining slice of bread, cut in half, and enjoy!


For a simple side salad with this sandwich, just make extra dressed arugula and add extra sliced apples to it.
Fresh figs or pears can be used in place of the apples, if desired.
