- 2 red-skinned apples, cored and chopped
- 2 Little Gem lettuces, shredded
- 100g bag watercress
- 125-150g mature Stilton, crumbled
- 100g bag walnut pieces, roughly chopped if large, and lightly toasted
- For the dressing
- Zested rind and juice of 1 lemon
- 6-8 tbsps walnut oil
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2-3 tbsps fresh chives, chopped
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Stir the apple in the lemon juice for the dressing, to help prevent it discolouring.
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.
Add the remaining dressing ingredients to the lemon juice, whisk together and spoon over the salad.
