STILTON™, Granny Smith Apple and Toasted Sesame Salad
The crisp, clean flavor of Granny Smith apples combines perfectly with STILTON cheese. To appreciate the combination fully, try this delicious salad, enriched with toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy it as a starter or light main course.


7 oz STILTON cheese, rind removed
4 Granny Smith apples, sliced
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 bag mixed green salad, washed
4 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
1 twisted sesame loaf (if unavailable, any medium loaf with sesame seed will do)
5 tbsp canola oil
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp cider or white wine vinegar


1. To prepare the dressing, combine the two oils, the mustard and the vinegar. Set aside.

2. Preheat a toaster oven or broiler. Cut off all crusts with sesame seeds to a thickness of about 1/2 inch and then cut these into strips. Discard the rest of the loaf. Toast the sesame crusts until crisp.

3. Place the apple, celery and salad greens into a large bowl, toss with dressing and distribute among four large plates.

4. Crumble the STILTON over the salad, scatter with toasted sesame seeds and finish with toasted sesame crusts. Drizzle with dressing and toss.
