Ploughman's Cheddar Cheese Salad
with Onion Marmalade Dressing, Croutons and Pear | Serves 2
The classic flavours of a Ploughman's sandwich, but in a salad. This quick and tasty lunch layers baby leaves, mature Cheddar cheese and slices of pear. Top the salad with homemade croutons, before drizzling over a balsamic vinegar and onion marmalade dressing to finish.
Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the war in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
