WCC #14 Salad: Insalata di Fontina

978-3884725900 *
Tami at running with tweezers is the guest host of the 14th edition of Weekend Cookbook Challenge, created by Sara over at I Like To Cook. The theme this month: salad. I chose the cookbook Kochen mit Käse – Cooking with cheese*. I must buy it, when I saw the review at Fool for Food 20.09.2023 ** and …. the price. The English title: A Passion for Cheese* is available*.

Salads with cheese and meat are very popular in Northern Europe. I used Fontina, italian ham and sliced mortadella.
