Directions See How It's Made
- Make a fine julienne of the vegetables.
- Stack the three cheese with the Cashel Blue in the middle.
- Wrap in the Filo Pastry and seal the parcel.
- Brush with the egg wash.
- Place in a small heated oven-safe pan that contains a little oil.
- Let it sit while you prepare the dressing. Broil the parcel for five to seven minutes or until the pastry puffs up and turns a lovely golden brown.
- Toss the salad in the dressing.
- To serve, place the salad on the plate like a small hay stack. Arrange the cheese parcel either on top of the veggies or beside them.
- Note: The jack & gouda replace the original cheeses of Milleens and Durras. Both are extremely hard, if not impossible to find in the U.S.
