    Love these! So refreshing and light. Had to make two versions as there are some that have a "no meat with fruit" thing going on so I subbed out the cantaloupe for a mild Vermont cheddar. Both are delicious, but my fave is as written. Thanks for sharing!

    What a wonderful, refreshing, delicate, yummy sandwich! Instead of making little tea sandwiches, I made a whole sandwich for dinner last night (with the crust on). Today I had one for lunch, and it tasted even better letting the flavors in the spread meld overnight. I will definitely be making this one often!
