Cheese Curd, Asparagus, and Prosciutto Pasta Salad
Cheese curds sure are delicious, but snacking on them alone can be a bit heavy, especially in the summertime. Lucky for you curd lovers, Serious Eats has devised a clever way to bring them to each and every barbecue this season: pasta salad.
Cheese curds are tricky little guys. While they might be all squeaky and salty when fresh, they can easily turn to rubber if too cold, or melt into goo when warmed. What to do? The trick I used here was to toss them in a warm pasta salad, so that the heat from the boiled noodles heats them just to the point where they become pliable and flavorful.
