Warm Bean Salad with Organic Bath Soft Cheese

Warm Bean Salad with Organic Bath Soft Cheese


Try this delicious salad of warm fine green beans and tiny new potatoes with chunks of wonderful organic Bath Soft Cheese as a starter, light lunch or healthy supper.

1. Remove the Bath Soft Cheese from the refrigerator to allow it to come up to room temperature.

2. Put the potatoes on to cook in lightly salted boiling water. They will take 15 - 20 minutes. At the same time, cook the green beans in a little lightly salted water for about 4 - 5 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, whisk the lemon zest and juice with the olive oil and parsley in a large serving bowl. Stir in the capers and olives, then season with a little salt and plenty of black pepper.

4. Tip the warm beans and new potatoes into the dressing and leave to cool for about 10 minutes. Add the salad leaves. Cut the Bath Soft Cheese into chunks, add them to the salad and toss everything together gently to mix. Serve at once.

In the south, we call it hoop chseee, you know the red rind chseee in the supermarket. In my opinion, this makes the absolute best grilled chseee. Use some very fresh white bread and a medium-hot cast iron skillet. Place a pat of butter on hot pan and place bottom slice of bread. Next, place a generous helping of the chseee (shredding will help it melt faster, as well as bringing to room temperature). Once the chseee begins to melt good, the bottom slice should be nice and golden brown. Use a large spatula and lift the sandwich and place another pat of butter and spread in pan. Simply flip sandwich over and cook other side. Unbelievable sandwich!
