Havarti, Avocado, Baby Arugula Grilled Cheese from Lemons and Zest // “The flavor of this sandwich comes from the avocado. I prepped it just as I would a piece of avocado toast with lemon juice, garlic, sea salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Don’t skip this part as it is what makes the sandwich a true WOW. The baby arugula wilts just enough to round everything out in this sandwich.”
