Cheddar Cucumber and Marmalade Sandwiches
Time 5 minutes
Yield 4 sandwiches
Melissa Clark came up with this recipe in 2011, a sandwich for her daughter, against the one she made for herself with Branston pickle in place of the marmalade. (Branston pickle is a British pickled chutney, made with vegetables, that dates back to the early 20th century.) You can certainly make the grown-up version. But this sweet, salty, cool variety is close to perfect for lunch or a light dinner.

8 slices pumpernickel bread
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
6 ounces thinly sliced Cheddar or Gruyère or Swiss cheese
1 cup thinly sliced cucumber
1. Spread the bread slices with butter and then a very thin layer of marmalade. Top 4 slices with cheese and cucumber and then with the remaining bread.
Variation: Substitute Branston pickle for the marmalade.
