PARTNER POST – Get inspired with creatively crafted Castello Blue Cheese as we celebrate a Summer of Blue with #BluesdayTuesday.
Drizzled with vinegar, these pitas are topped with grilled peaches, creamy blue cheese, and crunchy walnuts for an easy and delicious appetizer or lunch.

One of my favorite things about summer is being able to cook outdoors. This time around we set up a stove top and used a cast iron griddle to make these tasty flatbreads. It was the perfect snack for in between lunch and dinner. They are also simple to make, all you need is a grill or grill top and a handful of ingredients.
We used pita bread as the base and toasted it on the grill top to give it a little crunch. I absolutely love cheeses with distinct flavors so I chose to use Castello’s extra creamy Danish Blue. I like the consistency of this cheese because it gets fairly soft and the flavor has just the right amount of strength.
I then chose ingredients that paired well with blue cheese: arugula, grilled peaches, sliced shallots, walnuts, and a drizzle of balsamic fig vinegar. The juicy peaches were great for the warm weather and paired nicely with the Castello cheese.
