Celery and Apple Salad

This salad can not be any easier to make and is a gorgeous crunchy winter salad. The French Blue Cheese in the dressing gives the salad a little added bite and really worth adding to the salad.

Serves: 4-6



1-1½  cup of  Celery, chopped

3 red Apples, quartered and with skin on

100g Walnut pieces


Ingredients For the Dressing:

1 Garlic clove, finely chopped

2 tablespoons Cider Vinegar

3 tablespoons Olive oil

3 tablespoons Walnut oil

75g Roquefort cheese

Salt and Black Pepper to taste



  1. Place the garlic in a bowl with the vinegar, salt and pepper.
  2. Add the oils, tablespoon at a time and beat the mixture well after each addition to form a thickened dressing.
  3. Crumble the cheese into the dressing and beat until smooth.
  4. Put the celery, apple and walnut pieces in a serving bowl and pour the dressing over.
  5. Toss lightly and serve.

Tip: Pour some lemon juice over the apples to prevent it from going black. Use some of the celery leaves to garnish the salad.


About The PaperCup Kitchen

Hi there everyone. I am Nelmarie, but please call me Nel. I, like so many people out there enjoy cooking and baking. Food makes me smile and it makes my heart beat faster. The only place where I know I fit just perfectly, is in the kitchen. I have also enrolled in a few cake decorating courses this year and I think I have met my true love....not mentioning my Hubby now :D. It took me 36 years to find out what I want to do with my life and I can now say the answer is rather simple...Bake and then decorating what I've baked. I have started PaperCup in 2011 whilst we were living in Moscow, Russia. Living the life of an Expat can sometimes get very lonely and the blog has not only brought the whole world into my kitchen but I have met so many gorgeous Foodie Friends. I am so happy that I have taken the plunge and started PaperCup. I am not a brilliant writer, I am not a brilliant chef, I am not a brilliant baker BUT I do invite you into my kitchen, take your shoes of, relax, have a bite to eat and let's have a chat. A little more about me: Nelmarie Rennison, married to Christopher for 6 years, together for 12. Two lovely kiddies, Nicholas 3 1/2 and Allegra just over a year. South African, lived in Russia for two years and now loving living in the UK. Diagnosed with MS in 2000 and never felt better :D I am just as grateful for dust blowing in my eyes as I am for Angels sitting on my shoulders. I love my family, my friends, my life and I am grateful for each new morning. Looking forward to get to know you better xx
