ᛎ Jump to recipe

Fresh and so easy to whip up. This was the perfect side dish to serve along side the two types of pasta I dished up at my last supper club

Watercress, Apple & Blue Cheese Salad

Cooking Time: 15 minutes | Serves: 2-4 people



  • 4 cups Watercress leaves, washed and spun
  • 1 granny smith green apple, thinly shaved
  • 150 grams soft blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup crushed walnuts, optional to dry toast walnuts


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper


  1. Place watercress, apple, blue cheese and walnuts in a bowl.
  2. I like to add dressing ingredients in a clean small jar and shake first before drizzling over salad.
  3. Dress and serve.


    • Other ingredients that can be added to this salad could be; orange segments, radicchio, shaved pear, mint leaves.
    • To make ahead of time shop and place ingredients in a bowl and cover with cling wrap and into the fridge. Measure dressing in jar and set aside.
