Woman's Weekly recipe This blue cheese and bacon salad is so quick and easy to make. It's full of creamy cheese and smoked bacon rashers, tossed in crisp salad leaves and drizzled in a homemade honey and mustard dressing - delicious!


  • 4tbsps olive oil
  • 2tbsps cider vinegar
  • 1tsp mustard powder
  • 1tsp honey
  • 140g packet Wensleydale Blue, or British Blue or Stilton
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 120-150g bag salad leaves
  • 6 rashers smoked streaky bacon, cooked and chopped

If you don't like bacon you could always use chicken or beef instead.


  1. Pour the oil, cider vinegar, mustard powder and honey into the bowl of a mini food processor and crumble in half the cheese. Whizz until smooth, and then season to taste.
  2. Tip the salad leaves into a bowl, then scatter over the chopped bacon and break the rest of the cheese into small chunks and add to the dish.
  3. Drizzle over some of the honey and mustard dressing, and serve with the remaining dressing in a jug so you can add more if you like.
