    Red cabbage and blue cheese salad with blackberry balsamic dressing

    A bright and beautiful salad in varying shades of blue.

    • Preparation time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 6


    1⁄2 medium red cabbage (about 350g), finely shredded

    75g blackberries

    1 1⁄2 tbsp Waitrose 1 balsamic vinegar aceto

    2 tbsp cold-pressed rapeseed oil, plus extra to serve

    60g bag Waitrose 1 peashoot and edible flower salad leaves

    2 tsp dijon mustard

    1 braeburn (or other red eating apple), cored and finely sliced

    100g walnut halves, toasted and roughly chopped

    100g Waitrose 1 gorgonzola piccante, broken into large chunks


    1. In a large bowl, toss the red cabbage with a few large pinches of salt, then set aside to soften slightly – about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, roughly crush the blackberries with a fork in a small bowl, stirring through the vinegar and 11⁄2 tbsp rapeseed oil; season and set aside. Pick out the viola flowers from the salad bag and set aside.

    2. Whisk the mustard with the remaining 1⁄2 tbsp oil, then toss through the red cabbage with a handful of the salad leaves. Mix through 1⁄2 the apple, walnuts and blue cheese; season.

    3. Spread the salad over a large platter, or divide among plates, scattering over the rest of the apple, walnuts and gorgonzola. Drizzle with the blackberry-balsamic dressing and top with the reserved viola flowers before serving.
