  • Lg Tin Apricot Halves, drained
  • Iceberg Lettuce
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Jar of Blue Cheese Dressing


  1. Drain the apricot halves and set aside to dry. Shred a few leaves of Iceberg Lettuce and place a small amount in the centre of each tea plate serving.

  2. In the centre of the lettuce, place a heaped teaspoon of cottage cheese and on top of this place a Apricot half, stone side down. You should now have a domed topping. At this stage the starter can be set aside for up to 1 hour.

  3. When ready to serve, pour over the top of the Apricot enough of the blue cheese dressing to taste and to trickle over the top of the fruit.

  4. This can be served with a couple of cherry tomatoes or a small wedge or two of cucumber.
