Tayberry, Red Oak and Shinglish Cheese Salad



  • 250 g Tayberries (Ettrick Gardens)
  • ½ red oak lettuce (Oamaru Organics)
  • 1 jar spiced Shinglish Syrian Cheese (Abdal Gourmet Catering)
  • ½ red onion finely diced (Oamaru Organics)
  • ¼ cup finely sliced mint leaves
  • ¼ cup toasted sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar


  1. Remove the red oak leaves from the base and rip into desired sized pieces. Arrange on serving plate.
  2. Remove the shinglish cheese from the oil and cut into chunks, I attempt to cut them into quarters but they do break into natural formed chunks as you go.
  3. Arrange these on top of the lettuce along with the tayberries.
  4. Sprinkle with finely diced red onion, toasted sunflower seeds and sliced mint leaves.
  5. In a small bowl combine the red wine vinegar with ¼ of a cup of the oil from the cheese, and use this to dress the salad.
  6. Enjoy!
