Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped walnuts, lightly toasted
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese (such as Roquefort or Gorgonzola dolce)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon port wine (optional)
  • 1 'Granny Smith' (or other firm, tart apple), peeled and cored, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice (or balsamic vinegar)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 20 pieces (approximately) thinly sliced whole wheat bread (such as Pepperidge Farm "Very Thin" brand)
  • 1 cup watercress

Instructions:

In a small bowl, combine walnuts, blue cheese, butter, and port (if desired). In a separate, medium-size bowl, toss apple slices with lemon juice and olive oil.
Spread about 1 tablespoon of the blue cheese mixture on bread. Arrange 3 or 4 apple slices on top. Arrange a few pieces of watercress on top of apples. Place a second piece of bread on top and gently flatten. Trim crusts; then cut sandwiches diagonally twice, for 4 triangles. Repeat with remaining bread slices.
