  1. Stir the apple in the lemon juice for the dressing, to help prevent it discolouring.
  2. Arrange the Little Gem and watercress leaves over a serving plate. Take the apple out of the lemon juice (but reserve the juice) and scatter over the top of the salad leaves, along with the Stilton and pieces of walnut.
  3. Add the remaining dressing ingredients to the lemon juice, whisk together and spoon over the salad.
