Open-Faced Turkey Sandwich with Apple and Havarti

Open-Faced Turkey Sandwich with Apple and HavartiRecipe
Randy Mayor; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
The flavors of fall meet in this sandwich. Tangy Havarti cheese provides a pleasing contrast to the sweet apples and spicy arugula. Substitute nutty fontina or mild Muenster for the Havarti, if you prefer.
