1/4 Photos of Cheese and Green Leafy Salads - Formally Known As Watercress And
Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:
Any spicy green and mild cheese can be substituted with great success. Very easy but VERY tasty. The dressing is simple so use the best and freshest greens and cheese you can find- I have even used locally produced sheep, goat and cow cheeses- just keep it similar in flavor- like a good queso fresco- thanks cg for the suggestion! The secret is the spicy green with the mild cheese. Keep those two in mind when choosing any substitution. Amazing little salad based on a Whole Foods Recipe. Posted for World Tour 2005.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Divide greens on 4 salad plates.
- 2Cut cheese into cubes removing rind if preferred. Place on top of greens.
- 3Whisk together lemon rind, juice and olive oil.
- 4Drizzle dressing over greens and cheese dividing equally between the 4 plates.
- 5Salt and pepper (freshly ground is best) if desired.
- 6Note: Remember when substituting ingredients to pick a spicy green like arugula or rocket and a mild cheese like queso fresco or even a montery jack- not as mild but still would be good here. Let me know what your combos are!
- 7Thanks Cookgirl for suggesting the queso fresco- we have some great ones made locally.
