So let’s get started…
1. Kale salad with apples and cheddar
We adore this kale salad by NY Times. Made complete with the palatable combination of apples and cheddar, this truly is something special! Take the most tender kale you can find and cut it into very thin filaments or chop it very finely, then combine with almonds, apple and cheddar in a large bowl. Whisk with lemon juice, salt, garlic and olive oil. Sprinkle with parmesan and hey presto!
2. Creamy Broccoli, Bacon and Cheddar Salad
When we found this salad by The Recipe Critic, it made us feel all warm inside! It’s a delicious broccoli salad full of bacon, cheddar, and almonds, all mixed together and finished off with a creamy dressing on top that is sweet and tangy! When it comes to the cheese, our
range works wonders for a quality cheddar bite!
3. Creamy Cheddar Macaroni Salad
This Creamy Cheddar Macaroni Salad from Jo-Anna at A Pretty Life is a perfect summer pasta salad. It’s loaded with peppers, celery, onions, chunks of cheddar cheese and elbow noodles, all covered in a tangy sour cream dressing. Simple, quick and at Westminster, we bet it’s delicious!
Jo-Anna describes pasta salads as a quintessential summer side dish and we definitely agree! Psst, this macaroni salad would go wonderfully with our Rustic Red Cheddar Cheese!
4. Mixed Green Salad with Pear and Cheddar
If you’re looking for a light side dish, this elegant salad spotted on In the Kitchen with Stefano Faita can be tossed up in no time. Salad greens are garnished with pears, cheddar cheese and nuts, and dressed with a tangy white balsamic vinaigrette. Scrumptious!
5. Cheddar and Pea Salad
This salad by Plain Chicken is the result of a satisfying combination of macaroni and green peas tossed in mayonnaise, cheddar, bacon and ranch! Seriously delicious and it’s great when served with grilled meats or even a sandwich.
