Cheese Missiles

If Trebuchet font would be a flavor… Let's start with the history of the font:
Trebuchet was designed by Vincent Connare in 1996. The Trebuchet name was created after the metaphor heard at Microsoft "To build a Trebuchet (a form of medieval catapult) that fires ones messages across the Internet."

It is not surprising that we've decided to make a dish having the symbolic missiles of a catapult. In simpler terms - some food with balls :]. After long reflections about what kind of balls and what kind of recipe should be done, we chose the spring salad with cheese missiles.

Iceberg lettuce
Soft goat's milk cheese
Little tomatoes
Shelled pumpkin seeds

For the salad dressing:
Grainy mustard
Olive Oil
Vinegar or Lemon juice

Shape the soft cheese balls and roll them in the roasted, salted pumpkin seeds.

Salad dressing: Mix a tablespoon of honey, 2 tablespoons of grainy mustard, tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar and add about one-third cup of olive oil. Stir all until smooth.

Sprinkle the dressing over the coarsely torned lettuce leaves and halved small tomatoes. Leave few tomatoes uncut – more balls will be in the plate! Put the cheese missiles between the tomatoes. Voila! Enjoy your Trebuchet!
