Manchego cheese is delicious on it’s own, but this version that is marinated in orange and rosemary sauce is your next favorite appetizer.

1 head of garlic, cloves separated and peeled (about 12 cloves)
1 small orange, quartered through stem end, thinly sliced crosswise, seeds removed
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 sprigs rosemary
1 lb. young Manchego cheese, cut or broken into ¾” pieces
Baguette for serving
Cook garlic, orange, and oil in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until garlic starts to turn golden, 10–12 minutes. Remove from heat and add rosemary sprigs. Season with salt and let cool.
Pour garlic mixture into a medium bowl, add cheese, and gently toss to coat cheese. Cover and chill at least 12 hours before serving.
Do Ahead: Cheese can be marinated 3 days ahead. Keep chilled.
