This is my own creation after buying some white Stilton with blueberries on impulse and having no idea what to do with it! We've also tried this with white Stilton with mangoes, apricots or cranberries, all wonderful! This is more of an idea than a recipe, so feel free to substitute nuts, fruits and dressing to taste. I've also used strawberries and almonds with this. *Note: White Stilton is different from regular Stilton, it is not a blue cheese at all because it has not gone through the process that causes the blue veining that gives blue cheese its distinctive taste. I would describe it as kind of like feta but a little sweeter, especially with the addition of the fruit.
- 1 bunch spinach
- 15 ounces mandarin oranges, well drained
- 1 apple, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup pecans (can be candied)
- 1⁄2 cup white Stilton cheese, with fruit in it (see note above)
- balsamic vinaigrette or poppy seed dressing
- Wash and drain spinach thoroughly.
- Mix with other ingredients and enjoy!
Absolutely spot on for simple and yet full flavours! I had some white Stilton in the fridge from my last trip back home to the UK, as well as a little blue Stilton too, so this was a great way to use it for a summer salad. I used tinned mandarins and also baby chard leaves as well as spinach leaves. I used my own French dressing and a pink lady apple. Ate this outside on the terrace and really enjoyed it! Made for Family Picks and ZWT6, for the Whine and Cheese Gang! Merci! FT:-) (Photos to be posted)
I loved all the flavors! I didn't have spinach but wanted to make the salad so used romaine. Thanks for a memorable salad! Made by a fellow Looney Spoon Phoodie for ZWT#6.
