Cheese Ploughman’s Sandwich with Cheddar

It all started from a dinner plate, but the popularity of the ploughman’s lunch has turned into a nationwide treat, packed into a ploughman’s sandwich.

To create the ideal cheese ploughman’s sandwich, pick a strong, crumble texture, mature Cheddar cheese for the full flavour to shine through. Sit the cheese on a spread of ploughman’s pickle with tomato, cucumber and lettuce for the salad. Then cover with a top slice of bread that consists of a spread of Hellmann’s mayonnaise.
