Irish Cheeses are some of the finest and most flavorful cheeses you can buy!  They get a lot of attention around St. Patick’s Day, however most of them are available all year long!  Most of the cheeses available are generous with flavor and characteristics that are wonderful alone or make any meal more enjoyable!  Check out these tasty looking Potato Bites made with Dubliner Cheese, click here for the recipe.

Last but not least, what do you serve with all of these great foods!  Coleslaw!  You can add this as a side dish or even topped on a corned beef sandwich to add a crunch and flavor burst like no other!  Haven’t tried it?  Add it to your must try list!  Whether you start with fresh cabbage and shred, buy the shredded coleslaw mix in produce, there is a dressing out there grandma can be proud of!  Wee Willy’s, another Minnesota Company makes a really fine coleslaw dressing!  It is in the grocery aisles and the flavor is a taste of Minnesota!
