I started off thinking I was going to make some sort of plum coffee cake spiced with cardamom. Okay, I might still make that. But then I stumbled across this recipe and it called my name. There’s nothing I don’t like about prosciutto, goat cheese and arugula. Add some sweet, tart plums – perfect! I made this recipe for a night out at one of the free concerts at Millennium Park. It was a gorgeous night to sit outside, listen to music, eat good food and catch up with some old friends. The sandwiches were the perfect picnic food, but they’re good enough to have for an easy summer dinner.

Spread 3/4 ounce cheese evenly over each bread slice. Divide arugula, plum wedges, and prosciutto evenly over sandwiches.
