  1. Tear lettuce leaves into large pieces and place in a large salad bowl.
  2. Quarter and core the apples, cut them into thinner wedges, then into chunks. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp of the lemon juice.
  3. Roughly chop the cheese into small dice. Mix the crème fraîche with the remaining lemon juice, then season to taste.
  4. Add the apples and cheese to the lettuce, drizzle with the dressing, toss well, then serve the salad in individual bowls.


To bulk out this salad for a main course or weekend lunch - add grilled, chopped bacon and chopped, roasted hazelnuts.


To extract the maximum juice from a lemon, first roll it on the work surface, pressing down on it with the palm of your hand.
