Avocado, Mango and Crumbly Cheese Salad

It is the time for summer salads full of fresh and healthy goodness.

A family favourite of ours is a mango and avocado on a bed of salad leaves, celery, cucumber and tomatoes with a sprinkle of pepper and splash of oil. It’s easy and very tasty especially with a bit of cheese, normally Parmesan, on top. This time however we tried Västerbottensost cheese from Sweden. (I hadn’t heard of a Swedish cheese either but it was good).

Västerbottensost has been made in Sweden since 1872. It is like Parmesan just a little softer and crumbly and with a stronger taste. I want to try it in a risotto as I think it would taste lovely in it. The cheese is typically aged for 14 months, in which time it develops a unique character with salty and bitter tones.

Västerbottensost is available from Waitrose, Selfridges and Ocado and comes in the most lovely shiny gold wrapper. I used a vegetable peeler to make these thin slices and I think it looked lovely. I don’t have the knife skills to cut it thinly.

I was sent the cheese to try out. I was not paid for this post and all opinions are my own. x
