You’ve got to try this crave-worthy chop salad piled with golden grilled cheese and drizzled with apple vinaigrette!
Confession. I am not a great gardener.
I want to be. In the past, I’ve tried to be.
Yet every year, most of the things I long to grow lay dormant, while the things I try to pull up flourish… maliciously.
In spite of myself, I usually end up with a handful of peppers, a few squash, and some tomatoes.
Oh yes, and let’s not forget the pots of mint that come up year after year, out of sympathy.
Thank you, Mint. At least you understand my pain.
Therefore I will add your vibrant herby zest to countless dishes.
My first mint-of-the-season landed in a cool chunky chop salad this week. I complemented the sweet grapes, cucumbers and mint with a zippy apple cider vinaigrette, made with Musselman’s Apple Cider Vinegar and topped with grilled cheese.
No, not grilled cheese sandwiches, just grilled CHEESE.
This California Cheese made by Karoun is called Yanni Grilling Cheese. Similar to Halloumi, Yanni has a firm texture and lower moisture content so you can actually place it in a skillet (or on a grill) to create a brown crispy exterior.
I actually prefer Yanni Grilling Cheese to Halloumi because it is less salty and has a creamy layered texture.
In today’s Grilled Cheese Chop Salad with Apple Vinaigrette, the combination of the cool mint and cucumbers, sweet grapes, rich crispy cheese, tangy apple vinaigrette and toasted pine nuts makes this chop salad one heck of a vegetarian meal.
This Grilled Cheese Chop Salad with Apple Vinaigrette is so fresh and inspiring, I suddenly feel like working in my garden. Say prayers!
