Ingredients
  • 60 g whole shelled almonds
  • 130 g blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1½ teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup buttermilk
  • ¾ tablespoons olive oil
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 small - medium head iceberg lettuce, cut into 4 wedges
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and cut into 1 cm cubes
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 175°C. Spread almonds on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until lightly toasted, 7 - 8 minutes. Let cool, then coarsely chop. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together cheese, lemon juice, buttermilk, and oil until smooth, and season with pepper.
  3. Break each lettuce wedge in half. Divide among four plates; top with apple. Spoon dressing over each serving. Garnish with almonds; serve immediately.
Notes
To get a bit more flavour from the Blue Cheese try grating it instead of crumbling.
