July’s Cheese, Please! Recipe Blog Challenge – Summery Cheese

The Big Cheesy Barbeque: Halloumi Rosemary Skewers vegetable kebabs

It’s early in the morning as I write this but the sky is bird’s egg blue and the sun is shining. Of course, in the blink of an eye the rain could be cascading through the drainpipes but nevertheless it feels like a sort of summer has arrived. So, in its honour, I declare July’s Cheese, Please! Recipe Blog Challenge to be all about cheesy summer food.

Our tastes for cheese change in the warmer weather; we’re less partial to a spicy wedge of Stilton and more in the market for soft, fresh cheeses or nuggets of salty cheese. But it’s up to you what cheese you choose and also how you interpret ‘summery cheese’. Whether it’s shivering determinedly over a barbequed chunk of halloumi, batting wasps off your goat’s cheese salad at a picnic or giving the glad-eye to a waiter as you nibble on some feta, let your cheesy imaginations run riot. As usual, starters and snacks, salads and sweets, puddings and pies and any other sort of dish is eligible.

Oh – and a bonus prize to anyone who can convince me of the merits of feta with watermelon as I Just Don’t Get It.

Want to take part in July’s Cheese, Please! Recipe Blog Challenge? Check out the full rules here.
