Mango, Prosciutto and Dandelion Greens Sandwich

Summary: This is a simple but impressively full-flavored, robust sandwich. Enjoy!

Yield: 2 sandwiches


  • 4 slices good country bread, preferably a day or two old
  • Jarlsberg cheese and a cheese plane
  • good-quality prosciutto, 2 really nice rounds of it
  • 1 Ataulfo mango, peeled and thinly sliced (~1/4") into oval "steaks" along the seed
  • dandelion greens spread


Preheat your broiler to high. On a baking sheet, place your bread slices. Atop each, place a cheese-planed slice of Jarlsberg (that's about the same size as the bread or roughly covers it), an oval steak of mango, and a half-round of prosciutto. When the broiler is hot, slide the tray of open sandwiches under it for about 3 minutes. You want the prosciutto crisped lightly and the cheese melted.

Remove and place two pieces of sandwich on a plate, the other two on another. Slather with dandelion green spread and serve immediately, as two open-faced sandwiches or smushed together for one big one.
