What is swiss cheese?

Swiss cheese  is a generic name in North America for several related varieties of cheese which resemble the Swiss Emmental.

Some types of Swiss cheese have a distinctive appearance, as the blocks of the cheese are riddled with holes known as “eyes.” Swiss cheese has a piquant, but not very sharp, taste.

Swiss cheese without eyes is known as “blind.

Swiss cheese slices

In general, the larger the eyes in a Swiss cheese, the more pronounced its flavor because a longer fermentation period gives the bacteria more time to act.

This poses a problem, however, because cheese with large eyes does not slice well and comes apart in mechanical slicers. As a result, industry regulators have reduced the eye size necessary for a Swiss cheese to receive the Grade A stamp.

Baby Swiss  and Lacy Swiss  are two varieties of US Swiss cheeses. Both have small holes and a mild flavor.

Baby Swiss is made from whole milk, and Lacy Swiss is made from low fat milk.

Quick, easy and delicious. I only had salami, and that's what I used in the sandwich. Of course a slice of ham and smoked turkey would double the yumminess. I shredded the lettuce, and seasoned it with a bit extra-virgin olive oil, wine vinegar, salt and black pepper. The tomato slices were also seasoned with a pinch of sea salt. The sandwich was so good!
