Homemade cheese salad with Beemster Royaal Grand Cru

Drinks dish. 6-8 servings. Prepare 15 min + 12 min oven time.  


  • 1 spelt baguette with sourdough (bake-off) or other baguette of your choice
  • 3 tbsp mild olive oil
  • 200 g Beemster Royaal Grand Cru
  • 1 shallot
  • 10 g chives
  • 50 g sweet and sour pickles + 2 tbsp. pickle juice
  • 1 tbsp (coarse) mustard
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise

Kitchen Stuff

  • Baking tray
  • Block rasp
  • Masher


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 °C. Cut the baguette into thin slices and place in a large bowl. Drizzle with the oil and season with pepper and possibly salt. Gently spoon over, without breaking the bread, and spread on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Toast the buns in 10-12 min until light brown and crispy, remove from the oven and let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, grate the cheese on the coarse side of the block grater and place in a large bowl. Chop the shallot, finely chop the chives and add.
  3. Cut the pickles into small cubes and add with the pickle juice, mustard and mayonnaise to the cheese in the bowl. Mix well and season with black pepper.
  4. Put the cheese salad in a serving bowl and place it on a large platter. Place the crostinis around the cheese salad on the platter.

Preparation tip

Replace the crostinis with the ready-made variety if you're short on time. No Beemster Royaal Grand Cru available? Then replace it with Beemster Oud.

This cheese salad goes perfectly with a drinks platter. You'll complete your get-together evening with these delicious carpacciowrap rolls.
