QUICK & TASTY #9 – Green salad with Manchego & walnuts

Manchego cheese saladContinuing with the string of tasty and healthy recipes with Manchego, today I bring you a salad that – unlike others – is full of personality.

The gutsy contrast of assertive greens with the sweet caramel, the slivers of Manchego, the wild raddish and the walnuts; will surely impress your guests.

What you need:

  • 1 head of green or red leaf lettuce
  • 1 (1/2-pound) piece Manchego cheese, rind removed and cheese shaved into thin slices (preferably with a cheese plane)
  • 4 oz chopped walnuts
  • 4 oz wild radish
  • 3 oz brown sugar
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Salt


  1. Wash and dry lettuce and tear into pieces. Arrange lettuce on a large platter.
  2. Sprinkle walnuts and chopped wild radish over lettuce.
  3. Cut the Manchego cheese in slices and place them in a grill – this can be done either using the microwave or a medium-heat oven.
  4. Sprinkle the brown sugar on top of the cheese slices and grill them for 5 to 10 minutes until the cheese is caramelized on top.
  5. Dress salad by drizzling vinegar and olive oil all over.
  6. Enjoy!

  1. First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how
    you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Many thanks!
