Jarlsberg Chopped Salad

Vickie Parks


This is a lovely Scandinavian salad of crispy fresh greens and Scandinavian spices, and it's tossed with a bit of creamy textured, buttery-flavored Jarlsberg cheese from Jarlsberg, Norway. It's a great side salad to serve with almost any Scandinavian or Norwegian main dish.
