I used Major Grey's mango chutney and enjoyed it with the Cheddar cheese. I put on 7 grain bread for a tasty sandwich! Thanks! Made for the Looney Spoon Phoodies for ZWT#6.

I loved this sandwich. I used wheat bread rolls that I baked and an apple/cranberry chutney that I received as a gift and was waiting to use. This is something that I could eat often. I love the combination of the cheese with the sweet/tart flavor of the chutney. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT6.

A great sandwich with the chutney, cheese and bread. I am going to add pickles next time, and enjoy this immensely. To make the full Ploughman's lunch add the salad tomatoes on the side with some country bloomer bread! :) Made for ZWT 6 Zee Zesties!
