Harbourne Blue Salad

Danish Blue salad

Notes: Harbourne Blue is a soft British goat’s cheese; in a pinch you might replace it with another strong, soft-yet-firm, blue cheese, e.g. Stilton.  The quantities shown below for the dressing are exact but the quantities for the spinach, cheese and prunes are a best guess and you may prefer to add what looks right to you.  As a rule of thumb, it should look as though there are about the same number of pieces of prunes as there are of cheese.

Serves: 2 large portions or 4 to 5 small portions.


For the salad:

For the dressing:


  1. Mix the dressing ingredients together, e.g. by shaking them in a small jar that has a lid.
  2. Put the baby spinach in a wide shallow dish.
  3. Pour most of the dressing over the spinach and toss to ensure each leaf has dressing on it.
  4. Scatter the prunes on top.
  5. Scatter the cheese on top.
  6. Drizzle the remaining dressing over the salad and serve.
