Fresh Lettuce Cucumber Salad with Cheese Cups and Herbs of Provence

Instead of grated cheese over the salad, make sometihng different like cheese cups full of the salad. Enjoy a simple way to serve and you don’t have much time for a fresh herb salad with cheese cups filled with simple ingredients full of seeds, vinaigrette and sweet pepper powder to make this appetizer.This is one of many quick moments where I first posted the recipe on Instagram and here today to share with you.

The idea of the cheese cups comes from the cheese crackers but with a shape. These are soft to fold just like a leaf of lettuce or tortilla. If you like more crunchy, leave 3 minutes more in the oven. Try more or less minutes, because food  makes us also happy during preparation.


Ingredients for the cheese cups

  • 100g Grana padano (finaly grated cheese)
  • 300g Mozzarella (finaly grated cheese)
  • 1 tablespoon flour0

Note: You can use any other cheeses combination
* The wheat flour make that the cheeses get firmer and harden,,,as it cools!



  1. Preheat oven to 375° and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Spoon about a tablespoon of cheese a few inches apart.
  3. Bake until bubbly and edges are beginning to turn golden, about 6 minutes.
  4. Let cool on baking sheet for a minute.
  5. Then carefully pick up melted cheese slices and place on bottom of muffin tin of can and let it cool for about 10 minutes
Mix the Grana padano (finaly grated cheese) Mozzarella (finaly grated cheese) 1 tablespoon flour
