Savory with a fruity twist, this yummy treat only looks schmancy... It's a cinch to whip up. If we said this recipe was flat-out fabulous, would you call the Pun Police on us?

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

1 high-fiber flatbread (or medium-large tortilla) with 110 calories or less (like Flatout Light)
2 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
3/4 cup thinly sliced Fuji apple (about half of a medium apple)
1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Lay flatbread on the baking sheet, and spread with cheese wedges. Evenly top with apple, and sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Bake until shredded cheese has melted and flatbread has lightly browned, 10 - 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, add vinegar to a small nonstick pot, and set heat to medium high. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Stirring frequently, cook until thickened and reduced to about 1/3rd of its original amount, about 2 minutes.

Drizzle vinegar over flatbread, evenly slice into 8 pieces, and enjoy!
