We recently had the chance to review some yummy cheese from Finlandia.
"Finlandia Imported Lacey Swiss is a reduced fat, low sodium cheese, aged 60 days, resulting in more flavor than other reduced fat cheeses. A mild, yet flavorful cheese makes Lacey Swiss the ideal guilt-free snack and the perfect addition to salads, wraps and recipes. In addition to great taste, Lacey Swiss offers a host of health benefits as an all natural, lactose-free cheese with no-hormones. It contains 25% less fat than regular Swiss and can be found sliced at your local service deli counter. Finlandia is also introducing Snack Rights and Snack Lights. These high-quality, healthy cheese snacks are individually wrapped and less than 100 calories each!"
One of our favorite hot dips is spinach artichoke and this recipe sounds divine!
Hot Spinach, Artichoke & Swiss Cheese Dip
2 tablespoons onion—finely chopped
2 cups light mayonnaise
*2 cups shredded Finlandia Swiss Cheese, Light Swiss or Lacey Swiss
1 box (13.5 oz) frozen spinach—thawed and well drained
10 ounces (1 can) artichokes packed in water—drained and chopped
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Blend first (5) ingredients together. Spoon into a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Half way through baking, sprinkle Parmesan over the top and continue to bake until done.
Serve hot with crackers or sliced baguettes.

What we thought: We tried the Gouda Deli Slices and they were oh so yummy! They were great for snacking and on sandwiches and they melted very nicely as well. Finlandia cheese is filled with all the good stuff and none of the bad, so I was happy knowing I was filling my family's tummies with yummy goodness without sacrificing taste. The deli slices from Finlandia are now my favorite way to buy Gouda cheese:) If you are looking for tasty, quality, good for you cheese check out Finlandia cheeses the next time you visit your deli counter:) ABCD Diaries gives Finlandia cheese an A+!
