Spanish Tomato & Cheese Salad | IRRESISTIBLY Delicious & Easy to Make

This Spanish Tomato & Cheese Salad is what authentic Spanish flavors are all about. We´re talking layers of tomato and Manchego cheese topped off with a delicious sherry vinaigrette. But the best part? This salad is easy to make and comes together within minutes.

Spanish Tomato & Cheese Salad
The Manchego Cheese I used (10% OFF Your First Order with Code ¨ONAFORK¨) is a young Manchego that´s been aged for 6 months. You can use other types of Manchego here or any other sheeps milk cheese. Though I don´t recommend one that´s been aged over 6 months. As it will over-power the salad.

Spanish Tomato & Cheese Salad
For the tomatoes I used tomatoes off the vine. But once again, you can use any type of tomatoes you like. The secret? Try to use the ripest tomatoes you can find, as it´s what gives this salad that beautiful pop of goodness.
