Ingredients QQ截图20180619162945


  • 4 slices Sourdough Pullman Bread
  • 1 Peach
  • 4 oz Sweet Peppers
  • 1 head Butter Lettuce
  • 2 Scallions
  • 1 Persian Cucumber
  • 2 oz Smoked Gouda Cheese
  • 2 oz Fontina Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp Fig Spread
  • 2 Tbsps Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar


1.Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove and discard the cores. Halve the peppers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Thinly slice both cheeses, discarding any rind. Combine in a bowl. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; separate the leaves. Halve, pit, and thinly slice the peach lengthwise. Thinly slice the cucumber into rounds. In a large bowl, combine the prepared peach and cucumber, apple cider vinegar, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes.



2.While the peach and cucumber marinate, in a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced peppers and white bottom of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the balsamic vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may spatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until coated. Turn off the heat.



3.Assemble the sandwiches using the bread, fig spread, cooked peppers, and sliced cheeses. Season the cheese with salt and pepper.



4.Rinse and wipe out the pan used to cook the peppers. In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the sandwiches. Loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil and cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and the cheese is melted (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil before flipping). Transfer to a cutting board and immediately season with salt. Carefully cut in half.



5.While the sandwiches cook, add the lettuce and sliced green tops of the scallions to the bowl of marinated peach and cucumber. Toss to combine; season with salt and pepper to taste.  Serve the sandwiches with the salad on the side. Enjoy!
