Balsamic Dressing and Parmesan Cheese Cups

Perfect for your next get-together!

Dressing recipe from Kari Martens:
3T. DAH balsamic vinegar, 1T. hot and sweet mustard, 1 garlic clove crushed in mortar and pestle, 1/2 c. olive oil, DAH salt to taste.

For the crust:

This is an impressive little trick that can only be done on our products! Either using theSilpat or Flexipat, sprinkle fresh-grated parmesan cheese in the shape desired and bake at 350 until golden brown (not too done, though). Let cool for less than a minute and then begin shaping. Because all ovens vary, this might take some experimentation . . .

For this salad, I spread the cheese in a rectangle shape and used the Beechwood Rolling Pin and Polyamide Spatula to create the cylinder look.

For a bowl shape, you can spread the cheese in a circle and when baked, use the Polyamide Spatula to transfer the cheese to the back side of any of ourTrays (makes a cup for salad). I love using the underside of the Brioche Tray or theCharlotte Tray for this type.

When crust is cooled, fill it with salad mix of choice and . . . ENJOY!
