Cheese and salad: a time-tested combination. Lighten up our indulgent triple cream Mt Tam with this easy herb & radish salad atop nutty, whole-grain toast. Here, we opt for parsley, micro-arugula, and sunflower sprouts for the greenery, but you could easily substitute cilantro or dill along with your favorite spicy greens. Dress lightly with 3:1 oil to vinegar, top with a few wedges of Mt Tam, and say goodbye to avocado toast.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoons champagne vinegar or lemon juice
2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, torn
3-4 red radishes, sliced thinly
3-4 tablespoons microgreens or small handful of arugula
3-4 tablespoons of sprouts
2 slices walnut levain bread (or any whole grain sourdough)
4 oz (1/2 wheel) Cowgirl Creamery Mt Tam
Flakey salt and pepper to finish
- Toast the levain bread.
- Combine radishes, herbs, greens and sprouts in small mixing bowl, and dress with oil and vinegar (or lemon juice).
- Top each toast with half of the salad mixture, and season generously with flakey salt and pepper.
- Slice the Mt Tam into ~1oz wedges or discs, and top toasts.
