This flavourful Mediterranean salad is easy to put together for a filling lunch or a light dinner.
*Blue-veined cheeses usually have a strong flavour; try crumbly French Roquefort, English Blue Stilton, Italian Gorgonzola and creamy Dolcelatte.
*Soft cheeses with a white floury crust are French Brie and Camembert; their flavours can range from mild to piquant.
*Parmesan is a strong, hard Italian cheese that is used in small amounts to flavour a dish.
*Delicately flavoured Italian mozzarella cheese melts well and is often used for toppings, but is also good uncooked in salads.
*The distinctive flavour of smoked cheeses makes them useful in bakes or cold dishes.
Love this salad, it's nice on its own and with grilled meat - 01 May 2011
