Top Tip for making Blue cheese and walnut salad

The salad leaves will keep best in the bags they're sold in while the cheese can be broken intopieces in advance and transported in an insulated container to keep it cool. The walnuts should also be kept in a small container - then the salad is ready to assemble just before it's eaten.
