Yes, a mouthful.
I couldn’t help but include every single ingredient in the title, as each plays a vital role in this sandwich.
I don’t even really know where to begin; this sandwich is simply divine, and I don’t think a description will do it justice.
But, because I like you, (and because I really want you to make this sandwich), I will try my best.
Hearty whole wheat bread dotted with plump raisins sandwiches together a delectable filling comprised of rich almond butter, sweet fig jam, tangy goat cheese, crisp fresh apple slices, warm cinnamon, and chewy dried apple slices.
The flavor combination of almond butter, fig jam, and goat cheese is nothing short of a revelation – you really must try it! The duo of fresh and dried apples adds a tasty seasonal flavor punch as well as a contrasting textural element.
This just might be my new go-to sandwich for the next month or so… or as long as I have the necessary ingredients in the kitchen ;).
