Fried Cheese and Arugula Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette



  • Small handful of cheese curds (try the Wandering Shepherd Cheese)
  • Few handfuls of arugula
  • 2-3 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • Fresh chives or basil, chopped
  • Ground black pepper

Apple Cider Vinaigrette

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • a small pinch of salt

*Mix all the ingredients together to make the dressing.


Heat 2-3 tablespoons of oil in a small sauté pan. Once the oil is sizzling hot, add the cheese and cover (the oil can be messy). Fry a few minutes on each side, until the cheese is golden and crispy.
Toss some greens on each plate, add the tomatoes and cheese. Drizzle some vinaigrette, top with chives or basil and a twist of black pepper.
