    Recipe by Idaho Preferred


    • 1 lb of Ballard’s Idaho Golden Greek Cheese
    • 2 Idaho tomatoes on the vine, sliced into small wedges
    • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted
    • Lighthouse balsamic dressing


    • Cut cheese into 1/4 inch slices.

    • Warm a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and add cheese slices in a single layer in pan.

    • Fry on one side until cheese has browned, then flip and brown on the other side.

    • Place browned cheese slices on a warm plate (plate can be kept in the oven to keep cheese from cooling) and continue to brown the rest of the cheese.

    • After all cheese is browned, toss the tomato slices and olives into skillet and quickly sauté for 1-2 min or until warm. Be careful not to overcook tomatoes.

    • Remove warm plate with browned cheese from oven and top with the sautéed tomatoes and olives.

    • Drizzle a few tablespoons of Lighthouse balsamic dressing over cheese, tomato and olives and serve immediately.
