    It depends on what you want. Number one can refer to anything + cheese. Number 2 means a sandwich with nothing but cheese.

    It sounds like you want a cheese sandwich, and that's what you should ask for.
    You could ask for a beef and salad sandwich with cheese; or a beef, cheese and salad sandwich.
