Serves 6-8

Ingredients

½ red cabbage

1 bulb fennel

1 x stick celery

1 x Granny smith apple

1 lemon, juiced

 

20 walnuts

 

For the dressing

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

pinch salt

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp Avocado or Olive oil

2 tbsp walnut oil

2-3 tbsp crème fraise or mayonnaise

 

180g/3½oz Stilton

 

Cooking Instructions

  1. Finely slice the red cabbage, fennel, and celery, use a mandolin if you preferred to achieve a very thin cut, and combine in a large salad bowl.
  2. Slice the apple into julienne sticks, add to a bowl and squeeze some lemon juice over it to prevent it from discolouring.
  3. Toast the walnuts in a dry frying pan for two minutes and set aside.
  4. To make the dressing, in a bowl add the red wine vinegar, a little salt, some Dijon mustard, some crème fraise and both walnut and avocado or olive oil. Whisk them together with a fork.
  5. Now bring all the components together, toss and transfer to your serving dish. Crumble over chunks of the Stilton cheese, drizzle the dressing and serve with some of the green fronds from the fennel bulb as decoration and garnish.
