Gluten-Free Apple Cheddar Cheese Toast

Think of these apple Cheddar cheese toasts like a grilled cheese 2.0. Not only do you get two servings of veggies when you bulk out your plate with this generous side salad, but we've also added in the goodness of fresh apple under the cheese for a bit of crunch! You only use half of the apple, so save the other half for a snack.
