Baby Artichoke Blue Cheese Cannelinni Bean & Lemon Salad



I do like easy preparing cooking, this recipe does get any simpler, and its looks very impressive. The blue cheese can be omitted if you want or changed for a different cheese altogether such as Cheddar, Lancashire or even Caerphilly. I use Cropwell Bishop as it has a very creamy flavour and waxy texture.


  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • finely grated zest and juice of 1 large lemon
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 2 small heads of chicory, sliced
  • 2 small heads red chicory, sliced
  • 1 115g bag Hampshire watercress
  • 3 x 285g jars artichokes, well drained
  • 1 x 400g can cannelinni beans well drained
  • 175g cubed Cropwell Bishop Stilton cheese
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
