Strawberry Salad With Chocolate Balsamic Dressing

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Nic2371

A refreshingly different salad, we can buy Stilton with black pepper here, but you can use any Stilton or even leave it out if you prefer. I make half the amount of dressing as I find that this is enough. Recipe adapted from Rococo Real Chocolate Book by Chatal Coady.

Yum! Although I didn't have the ingredients for the salad, I served the dressing over a salad of red leaf lettuce, vanilla poached pears, Asiago cheese, tomatoes and toasted almonds. It was a hit at a chocolate-themed dinner.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Divide the rocket between the plates. Slice the cucumber lengthways, seed and slice into halfmoons. Arrange the Stilton, cucumber and strawberries on the rocket. Drizzle dressing on top.
  2. To make the dressing: Place balsamic vinegar in a saucepan, add caster sugar and dissolve over a gentle heat. Remove from heat and stir in 2 squares of chocolate. Leave to cool at room temperature. Do not refrigerate or dressing will solidify.
