Summer’s Tastiest Herb and Cheese Recipes

Summer’s Tastiest Herb and Cheese Recipes

Cabot Cheddar and fresh herbs combine to create summer’s most flavorful dishes!

Nothing helps us unleash our inner gardener faster than a pot or a plot full of fresh herbs. Even city-bound farmer-wannabes can indulge their farm fantasies with window boxes of fresh herbs that can transform a dish for ordinary to farm-tastic!

We sent our Cabot Cheese Board bloggers a box full of herb seeds and garden related goodies, just knowing that they would come up with some scrumptious herb recipes.


Cabot partnered with Gardener’s Supply Company for the contents of this fun blogger box, which included a selection of herb seeds and herb snippers. We reached out to Gardener’s not only because they are a Vermont-based company founded by passionate gardeners, but also because, like Cabot, they are a proud B Corporation.

Here’s what Gardener’s has to say about being a certified member of this organization. “As a B Corp – Benefit Corporation – we believe that business can be a source for good by serving shareholders and society. How a company serves society can take many forms, including environmental stewardship, service to those in need, sustainability and more. Like other companies with B Corp certification, we are change-makers that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.”

This particular blogger box also included CowPots, the seed starter pots made with 100% renewable composted cow manure. CowPots is a thriving business started by the folks at Freund’s Farm who are also one of the 1,200 farm families who own Cabot.


To keep the herb theme going, we also sent our bloggers  Cabot’s most popular flavored cheddar – Garlic Herb 

The dishes our bloggers created exceed all our expectations. You’ll want to try all of these exceptional recipes loaded with wholesome ingredients and packed with great herb flavor.

Katie from Katie’s Cucina starts us off with a new twist on an old favorite. Her Stovetop Macaroni and Garlic Herb Cheddar Cheese is the stuff mac and cheese dreams are made of. The addition of cooking with herbs as well as Cabot Garlic and Herb cheddar takes this dish from ordinary to a cheesy, herbal explosion of goodness.
