The ingredient to prepare the gourmet salad with pecorino cheese chips

  • 200g of seasoned pecorino cheese
  • 50g of pitted olives
  • 80g of dried tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of finely chopped dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon of poppy seeds
  • Extra virgin olive oil to brush
  • Salt (optional)

How to prepare the gourmet salad with pecorino cheese chips

Start by cutting the seasoned pecorino cheese into thin slices about 2-3 millimeters thick. Make sure the slices are uniform to ensure even cooking.

In a small bowl, mix the ground black pepper, chopped dried rosemary and poppy seeds. This blend will give an aromatic touch to your pecorino chips.

If you want a more salty note, you can add a pinch of salt, but keep in mind that pecorino is naturally salty.

Pass each slice of pecorino cheese into the seasoning mixture, pressing lightly so that the spices stick well on both sides. Place the seasoned slices on a tray or baking sheet.

Preheat the oven and coat a baking sheet with non-stick baking paper.

Place seasoned slices of pecorino cheese on the baking sheet in a single layer, making sure they don’t overlap. Lightly brush the top of the slices with a little extra virgin olive oil. This will help to make them crisp while cooking.

Bake the pan in the preheated oven and cook the pecorino chips for 10-15 minutes or until golden and crispy. Keep an eye on the cooking, as the time may vary slightly depending on the thickness of the slices and the temperature of the oven.

Once cooked, allow the pecorino chips to cool slightly before serving. They can be served as snacks to enjoy alone or accompanied by a fresh salad with pitted green olives and dried tomatoes.
