For more delicious summer recipes, go to Remember, the finest cheese comes from Finlandia. So whether your July 4th plans include the ballpark, the beach or a backyard BBQ, don’t forget the Finlandia Cheese. It’s great on burgers, salads and sandwiches or have your deli operator cut you a hunk of your favorite flavor, wrap it up and serve with a baguette… for a European-style picnic.
