Tangy-sweet layers of grainy Dijon mustard and crisp apple slices give tonight’s grilled cheese sandwiches their gourmet flair. Sweet, slightly nutty Lamb Chopper cheese (a Gouda-style variety made from sheep’s milk) and Monterey Jack meld all the flavors of the sandwiches together. A refreshing side salad of apple, pecans, and romaine is dressed with a simple honey and shallot vinaigrette. (Chefs, covering your pan with foil as the sandwiches cook helps the cheeses melt faster.)

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the Lamb Chopper cheese (discarding any rind). Thinly slice the Monterey Jack cheese. Combine the cheeses. Cut the chives into 1-inch pieces. Quarter and core the apple; thinly slice lengthwise. Peel the shallot and finely chop to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra). Place in a large bowl. Roughly chop the peppers. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce. Roughly chop the leaves.

2 Assemble the sandwiches:

Place the bread slices on a work surface. Divide the mustard among all 4 slices. Evenly top 2 of the slices with the cheeses, chives, and half the apple; season with salt and pepper. Complete the sandwiches with the remaining bread slices.

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the sandwiches. Cook, loosely covering the pan with aluminum foil, 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and the cheese has melted. (If the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil before flipping.) Transfer to a cutting board; immediately season with salt.
