Pepper-Cheese Salad Supreme
The simple addition of grated pepato cheese, similar to Romano or Asiago, that's studded with black peppercorns, turns an ordinary tossed green salad into a house specialty.
12 cups mixed salad greens
3/4 cup coarsely grated carrot
1 pint cherry tomatoes, washed and stemmed
2/3 cup prepared vinaigrette or Italian dressing
2 cups (6 ounces) grated Wisconsin Pepato cheese
- In a large salad bowl, toss the greens, carrot, tomatoes and dressing until combined. Top with cheese. Serve.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
Tip: Wisconsin Asiago or Romano cheese and coarsely ground black peppercorns may be substituted for the Pepato cheese.
