Salads are an essential part of party tables. However, I chose something completely different for the summer—delicious Georgian-style cheese. All the guests will eagerly reach for such a snack.

When I don't have much time for cooking, this recipe immediately solves the problem. Cottage cheese served this way transforms from a breakfast dish into a simple snack. Sometimes, you don't need many ingredients or a complicated preparation method to make something delicious.

Georgian-style cheese

Georgian-style cheese is a simple yet tasty recipe that works perfectly as an appetizer. The possibility of modifying the ingredients, for instance, using smoked cheese instead of some cottage cheese, allows for creativity and discovering new flavours. I don't know anyone who didn't ask me for this recipe after trying it.

It tastes best right out of the fridge - it's fresh and makes an excellent snack for warm days. It's also perfect for grilling – I don't know a better addition to meats. It would help to plan the preparation earlier because the cottage cheese should spend 24 hours in a brine solution.

Ingredients:

  • 28 oz fat white cheese in a block,
  • 3 pickles,
  • 2 onions (one white, one red),
  • parsley.

Brine

  • about 1 quart of water,
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce,
  • 1 tablespoon salt.

Sauce

  • 7 oz of mayonnaise,
  • 12 oz of 18% sour cream,
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce,
  • 5 cloves of garlic.

Preparation method:

  1. Cut the cheese into slices 0.4-0.6 inches thick and place them in a bowl.
  2. Prepare the brine from the water, soy sauce, and salt. Gently pour it over the cheese and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  3. Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, soy sauce, and garlic through a garlic press.
  4. Drain the cheese from the brine, wait a few minutes, and pour the prepared sauce over it.
  5. Dice the pickles and onions, chop the parsley, and sprinkle them over the cheese.

You can replace part of the mayonnaise with natural yogurt if you want the Georgian-style cheese to be lighter. It tastes best when chilled. Enjoy your meal!
