Spanish Cheese Spread

This is such a versatile and scrumptious spread.  We put it on toast that was smeared with olive oil, garlic, and tomato (tostadas de ajo), and had it with paella, but it’s great on fried polenta, spread in banana peppers, on salad…….  The bread was from Andrea’s Strudel Shop at the Gatesville Farmer’s Market (or call 254-216-0319).  She makes wonderful pastries and breads.
