South African Pink Lady, Stilton And Caramelised Pecan Salad:

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 2 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

80g bag watercress

150g young spinach leaves

2 South African Pink Lady apples, cored and sliced

Two tbsp lemon juice

2 sticks celery, thinly sliced

50g raisins or sultanas

150g Stilton cheese, broken into chunks

80g pecan nuts

10g butter

1 tsp caster sugar 

Pinch of sea salt flakes 

Dressing:

4 tbsp walnut oil

tsp Dijon mustard

tbsp cider vinegar or white wine vinegar

Pinch of salt, sugar and freshly ground black pepper

South African Pink Lady, Stilton And Caramelised Pecan Salad Method:

1.) Firstly, rinse and drain the watercress and spinach leaves thoroughly, then share them between 4 serving plates.

2.) Toss the apple slices in lemon juice and arrange them on the salads with the celery, raisins or sultanas and Stilton cheese.

3.) Heat the pecans in a dry frying pan for 1-2 minutes, then add the butter and sugar. Cook for another few seconds to melt the butter and sugar, then remove from the heat after another few seconds when a little smoke begins to rise. Cool slightly, then add the sea salt.

4.) Make the dressing by mixing together the walnut oil, mustard and vinegar. Season with a pinch of salt, sugar and freshly ground black pepper.

5.) Scatter the pecans over the salads and drizzle the dressing on top. Serve at once.

Cook’s tip: Try using sliced South African pears instead of apples – or use a combination of apples and pears. Not keen on blue cheese? Try a soft goat’s cheese or Cheshire cheese instead.

To turn the tart over, you’ll need a little bravery. A 20cm (8 inch) frying pan with an ovenproof handle is required. Nectarine Tarte Tatin. Oh so yummy, indeed.
