    Cookgirl's Note:

    Whether the following recipe is traditional French or more "French-inspired", that I do not know. "What is Salade Gruyère de Comtè, Alex?" Is that the correct answer? Please use quality ingredients in this salad recipe. Don't try to sneak in Velveeta, my friend. I have eyes on the back of my head. ;) From a local source. Info for Gruyère de Comtè from Made from a centuries-old recipe, 70-pound wheels of Gruyere de Comté (Comté, for short) have been produced since the reign of Charlemagne, when there were no separate entities named France and Switzerland. Although Swiss Gruyere may be better known, the French variety is no less special. Created by local villagers in alpine dairies called "Fruiteries", its milk comes only from Montbeliarde and Tachete de L'est cows. Contributing to Comté's unique flavor, morning and evening milkings are mingled before the cheesemaking process. For transforming the milk into curds, the cheesemaker must only use natural ferments to receive the Comte seal. The wheels are aged for six months, resulting in a sweet and nutty masterpiece with less bite than its twin from Switzerland. Comté has a satiny, ivory-colored body and a scattering of holes the size of a hazlenut. A traditional fondue cheese, Comte can also be shredded, sliced, grated, chunked or melted.

      Made as directed. I served it as a side salad, although this is hearty enough to be a main course salad! Great flavors and composition. Thanks, Cookgirl! Made for ZWT5, Kitchen Witches.

      This *sounds* like something I was served while in Switzerland or France (can't remember which), but we had it with canned corn (weird, I know, but for some reason it came on pretty much any vegetarian salad I ordered in either country) instead of green beans, & just by itself, no lettuce. I'm looking forward to trying it, as I loved that salad & haven't been able to find a recipe for anything like it until now. As soon as I track down some Comte I'll let you know how it goes.
