Grilled Turkey, Apple, and Cheddar Sandwiches

Photo: Colin Clark; Styling: Missie Neville Crawford



Serves 4 (serving size: 1 sandwich)

Mango chutney is more savory than sweet, with warm spices, onion, and vinegar. It adds a tangy note to the sandwiches, but you can omit it if you like. For extra toasty sandwiches, weigh down with a plate or heavy pan as they cook.


  • 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, grated (about 1 cup)
  • 8 (1-ounce) slices multigrain bread
  • 8 teaspoons mango chutney (such as Major Grey's)
  • 4 (1-ounce) slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounces sliced lower-sodium turkey (such as Boar's Head)
  • Cooking spray
