Spinach offers a vitamin-rich alternative to lettuce in this sandwich. Chowchow is a mustard-flavored mixed vegetable and pickle relish available on the condiment aisle. Often served alongside pork and cooked greens, here it adds a subtle tang that complements the ham and spinach.

Prep: 7 minutes; Cook: 4 minutes

How to Make It

Step 1

Layer each of 4 bread slices with 2 ounces ham, 1 slice Muenster cheese, 1/2 cup baby spinach, 1 tablespoon chowchow, and 1 bread slice.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat sandwiches with cooking spray; add to pan. Cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned and cheese melts. Cut sandwiches in half, if desired. Serve immediately.

I couldn't find chow-chow anywhere. I tried Safeway, Lucky's and Piazza's fine foods with no luck. As a substitute I used relish, which my husband didn't really like much. This would have been much better with the correct ingredients--had they been available.

Made this sandwich for dinner last night for dinner along with a Health "Updated Waldorf Salad," delish, everyone enjoyed. I did make 2 small changes; added about 1/2 tsp. of light mayo w/ the chow-chow relish and I used hot chow-chow instead of mild. Good summertime meal.

Great sandwich!!! Very quick to assemble & cook. Definitely going to be a regular in our house. I used slices of sour dough, because it's what I had on hand. I liked the addition of chow-chow, that's what caught my eye.

OMG! This is amazing. Quick and simple. The flavors are perfect. The bread makes it "mad"! I also did use butter, I figured a little fat and flavor would go a long way. Also had this with the Waldorf salad.
