The other day I wrote about accepting that January will never be the cheeriest of months. Even though I do miss the sunshine sometimes, the dark months can bring me calmness and peace, especially when I can light up lots of candles and hunker down and write.
Maybe the sun today put a smile on my face and a spring in my step, and I decided a healthy salad would be ideal for a working lunch. I also promised a review of Shepherds Purse Katy’s White Lavender cheese.
Katy’s White lavender is a lovely fresh white sheep milk cheese that has been rolled in English lavender to mature. The maturation period allows the lavender to infuse through the cheese. The result is a delicate fragrant taste combining with the meadowy sweetness of the ewe’s milk cheese.
So I thought, perfect as an addition to a lunch salad.
Simply toss grapes onto peppery rocket leaves, crumble over Katy’s White Lavender cheese, top with toasted flaked almonds and a drizzle of honey and mustard dressing.
This combination would also work well as a starter.
If you were looking for a main course recipe using this soft cheese, I would suggest this recipe by Chef Robert Taylor – Katy’s Lavender stuffed leg of lamb.
Back to work……………..
