Summer Vegetables with Castello® Double Cream Brie


  1. Bring 3 litres of water and 2 tbsp of salt to the boil. Add the shallots and boil for 1 minute. Add the asparagus, green beans, sugar snap peas and board beams and boil for 2 more minutes. Drain and cool the greens in cold water. Drain and pat dry.
  2. Combine all ingredients for the dressing and mix well. Toss the greens and lettuce in the dressing, and divide onto four plates. Top each salad with 6 wedges of Castello Double Cream Brie cheese. Serve with extra black pepper if desired.

*Tip. Before serving, put each plate under a grill briefly for 1 minute or until the cheese softens and starts to caramelise.
