    Apple, pecan & blue cheese salad

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes

    Serves: 4


    150g sliced white bread, cut into 2cm chunks
    1 tbsp olive oil
    50g pecans, roughly chopped
    2 royal gala apples, thinly sliced
    1 romaine lettuce, torn
    100g Stilton, crumbled

    2 tbsp natural yogurt
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 tsp Dijon mustard
    ½ tsp clear honey


    1 Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Put the bread on a baking tray and drizzle with the oil. Season, then roast for 10-15 minutes until golden and crisp. Meanwhile, roast the pecans on a separate baking tray for 6-7 minutes, until fragrant. Transfer the croutons and nuts to a bowl with the apples, lettuce and Stilton; mix well.

    2 In a small bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients, season and whisk well. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and serve straightaway.

    Roughly chop and toss through a crumble topping mixture before baking, for added texture and flavour. It's extra delicious if you use demerara sugar.
