In today’s market, diners are looking for signs of fresh fare, and this appetizer combines craveability with seasonality beautifully. It’s also ultimately shareable, serving up a satisfying, sociable cheese dip. Blending savory and sweet, grape tomatoes and fresh peaches are quickly browned in a skillet over high heat, intensifying their flavors, then topped with Wisconsin Fontina and Parmesan cheese. A touch of black pepper and fresh rosemary further elevate the nutty, earthy flavors of the cheese. “The combination creates a spoonable, hearty dip served with baguette slices,” says Heather Porter Engwall, Director of National Product Communications. “This simple preparation can be adapted to use a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables—asparagus and spring onions with Gouda; sweet corn, zucchini and bell peppers with mozzarella and basil; cherries and apples with Brie.”
