I think salads are fun to create. The toppings and dressing are endless possibilities. My new found interest has been roasting dates or figs.  They just compliment a salad so well; especially if you’re adding delicious Kerrygold cheese. I also went ahead and made homemade croutons using Kerrygold butter, giving the croutons that buttery amazing taste.

Salad Ingredients:

Watercress, or your favorite greens
4 pieces Kerrygold dubliner, sliced
Salt & pepper, to taste
Juice of 1 orange
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 roasted dates, chopped

Preparation:

In a large add juice of the Orange, olive oil, salt & pepper and whisk. Next add watercress, dates, cheese and toss together with dressing. Set aside.

Crouton ingredients:

2-3 day old pumpernickel bread, cut into pieces or cubes
1/4 cup Kerrygold butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Black pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon dried basil

Preparation:

Preheat oven 350 F degrees.

In a medium bowl toss all the above ingredients together. Place on to parchment paper and baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Top on salad and serve.
