Waldorf Salad Nest with Walnuts


Serves 4

2 ounces blue cheese, like Roaring Forties Blue
1⁄2 cup toasted walnuts ground in food processor
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
3 Fuji apples cut in julienne or matchstick size              
1 stalk celery cut into very thin julienne
2 tablespoons black currents    
1⁄4 cup mayonnaise
Freshly cracked pepper

Place 12 small balls (1⁄4 teaspoon) of blue cheese on wax paper and place in the freezer. Toast the walnuts in butter on top of the stove and chop in a food processor until a fine crumb and set aside. Remove the blue cheese dabs one at a time, rolling them in your hand with 1 tablespoon of ground walnuts to form an “egg” with the blue cheese in the center. Repeat for each ball of blue cheese. Next, combine the julienned apples and celery in a large bowl with the currents and mayonnaise. Season with freshly cracked pepper. On clean cold plates or shallow bowls form 4 nests with the apple mixture. Place 3 blue cheese eggs into each nest and serve.
