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.

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.
