    We enjoyed these tonight and my favorite part about these sandwiches is the combination of the saltiness of the prosciutto and the sweetness of the dates. I didn't have manchego cheese so I used what I had available which was Long Clawson Cotswald cheese and a French Port Salut - the combination worked great. Tagged it for PRMR. Thank you ellie_ for sharing.
