Apple, Grape & Pecan Salad With Stilton Cheese

Preparation Time: 10Minutes
Serves: 6

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples
  • 200g Stilton cheese
  • 100g low fat, soft cheese
  • 1 tbsp brandy
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 100g pecan nuts, chopped
  • 150g black seedless grapes, halved
  • 4 celery sticks, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • juice of ½ lime
  • salt & black pepper
  • 200g bag of lettuce leaves
  • Melba toast, for serving

Preparation:

  1. Mix together the cheeses, brandy, nutmeg and half the pecan nuts. Spoon onto a sheet of greaseproof paper and roll into a sausage shape. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
  2. Slice the apple and toss in the lime juice. Remove the apple, but keep the lime juice. Mix together the apple, grapes and celery and remaining pecans.
  3. Make the dressing by mixing the oil and left over lime juice and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Place a handful of lettuce on six plates, along with a spoonful of the fruit salad. Drizzle with dressing and place a couple of slices of the cheese roll on top. Serve with melba toast.
  5. Home-made Melba toast: Lightly toast thick slices of white bread, cut off the crusts and slice through the centre. Put the toast, cut-side up under a preheated hot grill and grill until golden brown. Keep watching the toast at this stage since the toast will burn very quickly.
