Wensleydale is an English style of cheese that originated in Wensleydale, England, but now is widely made throughout the United Kingdom. Wensleydale, like many of its English cousins, has a supple, crumbly texture and clean taste. Its fresh flavor lends itself well to being combined with fruits and citrus. Wensleydale is a delicious, stand-alone dessert and adds amazing zest and flavor to salads and cheese plates.
