The sudden abundance of green turns my mind to salads and delicious tangy Stilton with sweet apple, dried cranberries, bitter walnuts and so many lovely leaves. I do love a salad which is layer on layer of flavour and texture and this is it.
Stilton, Apple and Dried Cranberry Salad - Serves 1
50g, a generous 1.5oz Blue Stilton
1 stick of celery
Handful of salad leaves, mine included rocket (arugula)
1 tbsp Dried Cranberries
A small handful of walnuts
Handful sugarsnap peas
For the dressing
1/2 tsp runny honey
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1-2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
Cut the celery into pieces and the apple into slices. Roughly chop the sugar snap peas.
Layer up the salad then crumble on the Stilton and top with the cranberries and walnuts.
Make the dressing by whisking together the honey, vinegar and salt then gradually whisk in the oil till the flavour is to your liking.
Drizzle over the salad and serve.
