Idiazabal is a sheep's milk cheese originating from Spain. In this salad, it is is lightly breaded and fried. This will give the cheese a crisp, golden crust and a creamy, melted interior. Crisp lettuce is topped with tomatoes and cucumbers for the base of this salad. A simple mustard vinaigrette is tossed with the vegetables, coating them in its subtle flavors. The fried cheese is then tossed with the salad, adding a salty crunch.

Ingredients

  • idiazabal cheese (cubed, you can substitute smoked Gruyere or Manchego cheese)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • bread crumbs
  • vegetable oil (for frying)
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • vinegar
  • whole grain mustard
  • salt
  • mixed greens
  • cherry tomatoes
  • onion (sliced)

Directions

  1. Coat the cheese cubes with beaten egg and bread crumbs twice. Fry in plenty of hot oil.
  2. Separately, whisk together the oil, vinegar, whole grain mustard, and salt in a bowl to make a vinaigrette.
  3. Mix together all the remaining ingredients and cover with the vinaigrette. Place the fried cheese cubes on top of the salad and serve.

I wasn't to sure about this recipe when I saw it because it sounded like a strange combination; I couldn't have been more wrong. This salad was exquisite. It had a sweetness to it combined with a bit of sour and the cheese was unlike anything I have ever eaten. I 4 star winner anyday.
