Cheese for supper? Nothing could be easier. Add a mound of baby greens (with a light vinaigrette dressing) and a glass of local wine for a spectacular meal. When selecting cheeses, consider texture (firm, soft, crumbly) and flavor (salty, tangy, pungent). You might also combine cheeses from different animals (sheep, goat, cow) for an even greater kaleidoscope of tastes.
