Grilled Vegetable and Mild Smoked Gouda Cheese Salad

You can also grill the vegetables on an oiled grill pan set over high heat. Simply cook the vegetables one after the other, transferring them to a second bowl as you go. Finish and plate the salad as instructed below.

Servings : 6 
Preparation time :  20 minutes
Cooking time :  10 minutes
Total time :  30 minutes

For the creamy herb dressing

250 ml (1 cup) flat-leaf parsley

125 ml (1/2 cup) plain Greek yogurt

125 ml (1/2 cup) mixed fresh herbs (dill, cilantro, tarragon, basil, and so on)

30 ml (2 tsp) minced chives

30 ml (2 tsp) extra virgin olive oil

30 ml (2 tsp) lemon juice

15 ml (1 tsp) honey

1 clove garlic, minced

2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt

Freshly ground black pepper

For the grilled vegetables

2 red, yellow, or orange bell peppers, cored and sliced

2 zucchini, thickly sliced

2 ears of corn, shucked

24 green beans, trimmed

1 bunch asparagus, thick ends snapped off

30 ml (2 tbsp) extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste


200 g Mild Smoked Gouda Bergeron Cheese, diced

1 quart cherry tomatoes, halved

Fresh herbs, to taste (flat-leaf parsley, basil, oregano, and so on)

  1. For the creamy herb dressing: Add all the ingredients to the container of a blender or a food processor. Process until the dressing is smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning, if needed. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate until serving.

  2. For the grilled vegetables: Preheat the barbecue to high heat (see note). Add all the vegetables to a large bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix to coat the vegetables with oil. Oil the barbecue grate, then distribute the vegetables over. Color the vegetables on all sides, cooking them just until they are crisp tender. Remove the vegetables from the grille and put them back into the large bowl, setting the corn aside. Let the vegetables cool completely.

  3. Using a sharp knife, cut the corn off the cobs and add it to the bowl with the vegetables.

  4. Add the cubed Mild Gouda Bergeron Cheese and the cherry tomatoes, then toss to combine.

  5. Transfer the vegetables to a large serving platter. Drizzle with some of the creamy herb dressing, then garnish with fresh herbs. Serve the salad with the remaining dressing on the side, so each guest can add more to their own serving, to taste.
