Cheese Tips for Salad Recipes

TIP #1: Fried cheeses are a great addition to fresh salads. We love fried goat cheese, blue cheese, and of course, deep-fried cheese curds.
 
TIP #2: Use semi-soft cheeses like burrata, fontina and brie to elevate the flavor and texture profiles of your salad menu.
 
TIP #3: Consider skipping the greens altogether and opt for a grain salad. To best utilize ancient grains like freekah, spelt and chia, stick to crumbled cheeses of a similar size.
 
TIP #4: If you're going to keep kale on your menu, try flash frying it. Wilted, caramelized and even burnt salads are taking over, and are best topped with hard cheeses like parmesan, romano and asiago.

Industry Trends

According to the National Restaurant Association's 2016 forecasts, a majority of consumers say that innovative and creative food they can't make at home is an important factor when choosing a restaurant. The kale salad trend is also on it's way out, with guests instead opting for high-protein, nutrient rich options.
 
For salad menus, that means you need to think beyond basic greens. Boldly, ethnically-seasoned salads are a great option for 2016. An incredible 75 percent of consumers like it when restaurants with mainstream menus also serve globally-inspired dishes, making this trend accessible for any menu. Paired with a complementary, award-winning Wisconsin cheese, your guests will be impressed by your commitment to excellent ingredients and exciting flavors.
