Grilled Pear Sandwich with Provolone

Ingredients (for 4 persons):

5-8 oz Silvery Moon Creamery Provolone
1 loaf of rustic bread (try Walnut Raisin for a change)
2 firm pears
Smiling Hill Farm butter

Slice pears into thin wedges. Slice Provolone. Slice bread. Butter one side of each slice. For each sandwich lay pear slices on one slice of bread and top with the other slice of bread. Grill in a hot fry pan pressing flat with a spatula, and cut in half before serving. Would go well with a hearty soup or a fresh salad.

Maine Sweet Corn Salad with Grilled Queso de Verano

Sorrel is one of my favorite wild greens. It has such a refreshing, lemony tartness that will go very well with the sweet corn and fresh cheese.

Ingredients:

5 ears shucked Maine sweet corn kernels
½ cup diced onions
1/3 cup julienned sorrel
8oz Silvery Moon Creamery Queso de Verano, sliced into ½ inch blocks

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
5 tablespoons sunflower seed oil
1 teaspoon grainy mustard
½ teaspoon salt/pepper

Combine corn, onions, and sorrel in large bowl, and set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, and seasonings until smooth. Slowly pour oil into vinegar mixture while continuously whisking. Continue to whisk until emulsion is set.
Add dressing to corn mixture slowly until desired consistency is reached. Divide into plates or bowls before grilling cheese.
Lightly oil and season Queso De Verano, and grill on a hot, clean grill. 3-5 seconds each side, or until dark grill marks appear. It is very important not to let the cheese melt.
Top salad with grilled cheese.
