If you have any blue cheese lying about in your fridge, this is a great way to use it up. Long gone are the days of the dull green salad of my youth. Partly because I am pretty ancient now and partly because we all got fed up with tasteless iceberg lettuce, quartered tomatoes and cucumber slices. Here is a very tasty recipe from Good Housekeeping: Celeriac, Lentil and Stilton Salad – colourful, full of taste and texture, it will grace any table.


Recipe by Good Housekeeping, tried & tasted by GraceDifficulty: Easy



These days we have so many fabulous ingredients at our disposal and salads have become things of beauty that make our tastebuds quiver and our mouths water, whatever the season.


  • 1 celeriac bulb, about 750g

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 125g (4oz) frozen peas

  • 75g (3oz) walnut halves

  • 2 tbsp runny honey

  • 2 x 400 g tins lentils, drained and rinsed

  • 100g (3½oz) Stilton, crumbled

  • 1/2 red onion, finely sliced

  • 50g (2oz) rocket

  • For the dressing:

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp runny honey

  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar

  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard


  • Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan) mark 6. Peel celeriac and cut into rough 2cm (¾in) pieces. Toss in a roasting tin with the oil and some seasoning. Roast for 45min, tossing occasionally, until golden and tender.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients with some seasoning and set aside. In a separate bowl, cover peas with boiling water from the kettle. Leave for 2min, then drain well and set aside.

  • Line a baking tray with baking parchment 10min before the celeriac is due to be ready. On the lined tray, mix the walnuts and honey and arrange in an even layer. Put in oven for 7-10 min until caramelised.

  • Empty lentils into a large serving bowl. Toss through the celeriac, walnuts, Stilton, peas, red onion, rocket and dressing. Check seasoning and serve.


  • Stilton is great, but I used Roquefort which is my personal favourite blue.
