Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the cherries in a small container and cover them with the sherry or port. Set aside to plump up - a few hours works well.
  2. To make the dressing beat together the olive oil, raspberry vinegar, sugar, cinnamon and several drops of Tobasco (less if you don't want much of a kick) and some salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Put the lettuce or mixed greens in to a bowl with the Stilton, almonds, cherries along with any remaining liquid.
  4. Drizzle the dressing over the greens and toss to coat.
  5. Serve at once.

What an intriguing salad! I was fortunate enough to have fresh cherries, so skipped the soaking. This dressing is perfect for when you really just want a drizzle of dressing since it is absolutely PACKED with flavor.
