    2.5/5 rating (2 votes)


    • 2 cups Nature's Eats Dried Apricots
    • 1 cup water
    • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 8 slices Panini bread
    • 8 oz Asiago or Gruyere cheese
    • 1 lb deli Turkey (sliced)
    • olive oil for brushing bread

    Dynamic lunchtime idea with dried apricots and warm turkey decorated with cheese.


    1. Bring the Nature's Eats Dried Apricots, 1 cup water, balsamic and sugar to a simmer in a small pot. Simmer until the apricots rehydrate and the liquid reduces and thickens, about 12-15 minutes.

    2. Let cool. Once cool, place in a food processor and puree until smooth, 20 to 30 seconds.

    3. Preheat a griddle over medium-low heat or heat a panini press. Place a thin layer of the apricot spread on the inside of both halves. Place a couple slices of the cheese on the bottom, and then place 4 ounces of turkey on top. Close and lightly brush the bread with olive oil.

    4. Cook each sandwich until golden and warm, about 4 minutes a side.
