Caerphilly wasoriginally a Welsh cheese, but is now made mostly in the West Country. It is a mild soft cheese. Here it is paired with vine-ripened tomatoes and fresh herbs. Pretty and tasty. From "The Great British Kitchen" published by The British Food Trust.

I used beef steak tomatoes from my garden. They're so big that I only needed one tomato to prepare enough for two servings. I also subbed sour cream for the yogurt since I had some in the fridge that needed to be used up. Delicious! Made for ZWT8 Family Picks

Oh, this was so good! I used purple, orange and red cherry tomatoes from the Farmer's Market which added some nice colours. The Caerphilly is very crumbly so it was almost impossible for it not to fall apart when cutting it. This was the first time that I tried that cheese and it's very good! The dressing was really nice and would be good on any salad. Made for ZWT8. Thanks threeovens! :)
