Walnut & Blue Cheese Salad

walnut blue cheese

This walnut blue cheese salad is a simple yet tasty salad that is enjoyable enough to eat on its own.  It’s a great healthy quick lunch too.

Although this is such a simple salad I was in two minds whether to publish this as it’s just too easy to make.   I have been eating this walnut blue cheese salad a lot whilst the Chief Taster is away as it’s easy to make and not a lot of washing up was involved.   I have found it great when I am hungry, want something full of flavour but don’t want to spend ages in the kitchen on a meal for one.


I have put olive oil in the recipe for the dressing for this walnut blue cheese salad but have not always used this in my devouring of salad for lunch.  I have also used avocado oil which worked out well.  I used that simply because I found a cheap bottle of it in a small supermarket.     


The salad leaves can be anything you have to hand as I used a bag of local mustard greens.  They were so delicious and tasted so much better than anything we get exported here.  I am discovering a few local vegetable and salad companies in St Lucia and have not been disappointed.  The local grown arugula is utterly delicious.  So much flavour to it, that I could munch a bowl with just a light dressing. 

So, when you are looking for a quick tasty salad fix, throw lettuce, blue cheese and walnuts in a bowl!  Voila!
