  1. Wow, I really want to try this salad, one question tho. I don't think I can get that cheese where I live, could you describe what kind of cheese it is, so I can find a replacement for it :) Great photo too.

  2. hi Thomas, where do you live?
    It's quite a sweet aged cheese

    this is the cheese on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Leicester

    or other descriptions:
    Red Leicester is a russet red hard pressed cheese which will be sold at anything from 3 months to 12 months of age. The traditionally made wheels tend to be firmer and drier but have a friable texture and a slightly sweet mellow flavour that becomes stronger as the cheese matures. The block made cheeses are moister and are ideal for slicing and have a slightly sweet aftertaste and a creamy texture.

  3. Hey David,
    I live in Denmark. I'll have a look around for it, I might be able to at least get something similar. It could be sold under a different name here.

    Thanks for the info :)
