Cheese marinated with lemon and honey

  • 250 g cheese Emmental


  • 100 ml olive (vegetable) oil
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp liquid honey
  • 1 tbsp mix of oregano, basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary
  • 1 garlic clove (optional)
  • pinch of chili
  • Whisk all the ingredients for the marinade

  • Warm up the serving plate
  • Arrange the cheese onto the warm plate and pour the marinade over
  • Leave to stay for 1 hour at room temperature

This is a standing dish for me, as I always have „forgotten“ piece of cheese in my fridge. I make this cheese very often with different modifications for different purposes. Sometimes I don't add lemon juice and add less honey, sometimes I use fresh herbs. If you don't plan to serve the cheese immediately, you can place it in the jar, covered with marinade. You can use any cheese, Manchego, Gouda, Maasdam. On my picture is fresh goat cheese from a local farm.
