Nordic salad with raspberries and mature cheddar cheese

Nordic salad with raspberries and mature cheddar cheese

A perfect rendition of summer-spirit – our Nordic Salad with Spelt, Raspberries and Aged Havarti recipe presents a light take on a refreshing salad with homemade vinaigrette. Tossed in varied textures and flavours from chopped hazelnuts and plucked raspberries, shavings of Havarti adds depth through delicate delivery.

4 servings
Cheesy Salty



  • 150 g spelt, rinsed
  • 125 g baby spinach, rinsed
  • 125 g raspberries
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp hazelnuts, finely chopped
  • 75 g Castello® Tickler Mature Cheddar


  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • salt
  • black pepper


Bring rinsed spelt and water to a boil. Reduce heat, stir, cover, and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until the spelt is tender. Rinse with cold water. When the spelt is cool, gently toss it with spinach, raspberries, onions, hazelnuts and small pieces of Castello Tickler Mature Cheddar cheese. Mix together the ingredients for the vinaigrette and add it to the salad and mix it all together. Taste and season as needed with more vinaigrette, salt and pepper.
