Summer Ready with Laughing Cow® Light Cheese Wedges

Ready or not...summer is HERE!  What better way to make sure you look great in your summer outfits and swim suits than with the always amazing Laughing Cow® Light Cheese Wedges and some of my favorite ways to serve them?  (Disclaimer:  I was sent Laughing Cow® to sample and review for free.  All opinions expressed in this blog post are my own, and do not neccessarily reflect those of this brand.  I was not compensated for this review.)

I have been a huge fan of Laughing Cow® Light Cheese Wedges for some time now. (Yes, I've posted several recipes using them...just type in "Laughing Cow" in the search bar on the right and you will see for yourself!)  I love the variety of flavors and the fact that each cheese wedge is only 35 calories, which calculates to ONE POINT PLUS if you are following Weight Watchers!  THAT is an awesome deal for such deliciousness!  The taste of each flavor is outstanding and they are so versatile! They make a great addition to your summer snack menus.

I sat down with a good friend the other afternoon, and we had a few tasty snacks while enjoying each others company on my patio.  I didn't feel guilty one bit about the delicious treats we enjoyed, as each one was healthy and low calorie and featured the delicious Laughing Cow® Light Cheeses!

Our favorite pairing, hands down, was this one:   Refreshing cucumber slices, Light Garlic and Herb Laughing Cow® cheese wedges, grape tomato wedges, fresh basil and fresh ground black pepper.

This combo was outstanding.  Aren't they just gorgeous?  Imagine enjoying these tasty bites by the pool on a warm summer day with a cool glass of an iced beverage! (It's summer, remember to hydrate!)  I think they are beautiful enough to serve as an appetizer too!  Leave the fresh ground black pepper off if you aren't a fan, but we loved the bit of heat!

The next combo we put together was this one:  Your favorite cracker topped with Light Blue Cheese Laughing Cow® Cheese wedges, a dollop of fig jam, and a walnut.  

Salty, sweet, and tangy with the blue cheese.  These are great with a nice glass of a summer white wine spritzer! Yum.

The last paring we enjoyed was quite delicious:  Sweet red bell pepper chunks with Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle Laughing Cow® cheese wedges, and strips of crunchy raw carrots.

Love the colors and flavors of this one! Perfect start to a summer BBQ.  The Queso Fresco & Chipotle flavor adds a bit of smoky heat that goes wonderful with the sweet red peppers!  You can have 4 of these babies for ONE POINT PLUS!  (1 wedge of cheese divided between four pepper chunks)

Don't get me wrong, Laughing Cow® Cheese Wedges are great on their own with some crackers or spread on some raw veggies,  and perfect for "on the go snacks."  But when you have the time, why not treat your senses to something just a bit more creative?  (Remember we do eat with our eyes first.) You can feast on these beautiful creations and still not be cheating on your diet...but you might feel like you have!

Look for all the varieties of Laughing Cow® Light Cheeses in your grocers refrigerated section.  


I love, love, love Laughing Cow® cheeses.  At any given moment, you will find a package or two (or more) in my refrigerator.  I use them in eggbeater omelets and in all sorts of recipes...I even eat them straight up.  ( Especially the Queso Fresco and Chipotle flavored one!) I am always happy to feature them on my blog!  

Check out a few of the other recipes I have made using Laughing Cow® Cheese:

  1. Creative uses! I usually just put them on top of rice cakes ;)

    1. You have to try the cucumber was my fav and really, as easy as putting on a rice cake! :) (almost)

  2. Yep, to me the cucumber one looks and sounds the best. Yum! I do love laughing cow cheese too. I have some cranberry relish that would go nicely with some cheese too.

    1. cranberry relish would be wonderful with the cheese! They have a new light white cheddar..that would be my pick for that one! It was so fun making up pairings!

  3. Oh these look amazing!! Love them all. I never buy Laughing Cow cheese wedges b/c I can never figure out what to do with them besides eat them, but I haven't tried any of these flavors. Maybe they would bring out my creativity. :)

  4. LOVE the flavoured light laughing cow wedges! We have to pick them up in Bellingham when we cross border shop, because they aren't available here in Canada. The plain ones are though, and they are delicious in recipes. Have a wonderful day Renee!

  5. I am loving the blue cheese/jam/walnut combo - great idea Renee! Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. I like mine with rice cakes and topped with sunflower seeds :)

  7. Yum! Love these snacks you served with Laughing Cow cheese! I love those cute little wedges! Great post! =D

  8. Perfect snack ideas! I have been looking for some tasty creations to serve up on card night at our house!

    1. thanks for stopping by! yes! the cucumber one is my favorite, I think!
