Must try for those who love apples and cheese together - and that would be me!! I did mine on whole wheat soft pita using a panini press and loved it. The directions are confusing because they refer to Cranberry Coleslaw in directions #1-6 - just skip to #7 if you just want the sandwich part. I went ahead and made the slaw since I had the stuff already on hand but it certainly isn't necessary to enjoy this yummy apple/cheese quesadilla. Instead of butter, I used non-stick spray and fat-free cheddar for the cheese - great combo! Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2009.
