An English Cheese Salad [#51]

Scarcely a recipe, this, and indeed I can't find a link on the web, so will sketch the picture for you. A warm Spring day, crisp green salad leaves, thin slivers of sharp Mrs Butler's Lancashire Cheese (the cheese was sharp, not Mrs Butler!), toasted walnuts, and a mild and mellow dressing made with lemon juice, walnut oil and seasoning. This made for a supper of pleasing textures, to follow a non-Nigel brothy soup of Chorizo and Butterbeans, with chunks of olive foccacia. Very nice indeed! We haven't had any of Nigel's salads this year, because the weather wasn't right, but today, it seemed very appropriate.
