Stilton ice cream salad

I did what so many do, I bought a kitchen gadget and I used it once. It was an ice cream machine and I haven’t had time to think of ice cream over the holidays but left with a stash of cheese after Christmas I thought about cheese ice cream, to be more specific, stilton ice cream.


Stilton is a wonderfully rich, blue veined cheese. I searched for a recipe but they all had what seemed like too much sugar so I thought I would try and create my own recipe.


Stilton ice creamย 

preparation time 5 minutesย 

cooking time 0 minutes, about 10-15 minutes for churning

serves 8 as a starterย 


  • 100 gr or 3.5 oz stilton cheese
  • 1 1/2 dl cream
  • 1 tbsp honey

Heat up the cream and melt the cheese in it along with the honey. Once this is done place in the ice cream machine and churn. Once done place in the freezer and take it out ten minutes before serving.


I did the stilton ice cream for a salad. I wanted classic flavours and started to slice an apple very thinly and I dried it in the oven.




Leave it in the oven at 140C or 285F until it is dry and crispy.

I shaved slices of celery with the potato peeler and plated up. Before serving I added roasted pecan nuts. It made for a classic but fun salad and the stilton ice cream was so good, I can’t wait to experiment making more ice creams.




I had never thought of using ice cream in a salad before but I like the idea of savoury ice creams. if you have any ideas please feel free to let me know and I would be happy to give them a go.

I am taking a plate and am off to Fiesta Friday! Finally a time when I won’t arrive last catching my breath! Come and join us, get inspired, get hungry and have fun! Hosted as always by the genius and lovely founder Angie, this week co hosted by Juhs, The Not So Creative Cook (she is in fact very creative) and the always lovely Mr Fitz, Cooking with Mr Fitz.

      hi Juhls
      I searched for quite some time but all ice creams had sugar in them but this worked out even if I only used a little honey. I can’t wait to try more savoury ice cream recipes!
      Thank you for co hosting the best foodie party around! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. You are so creative. I have an ice cream machine, but I would never have dreamed to make a savory ice cream. I love stilton and can only imagine how delicious this came out. If you use the word salad it’s healthy right? Happy FF Petra!

      The stilton ice cream was so creamy and I took it out of the freezer to become nice and soft, I could have eaten more with a spoon I have to admit!
      I can’t wait to make some crazy ice creams! And of course salads are healthy! ha ha great thinking ๐Ÿ™‚
      Happy FF!

    Stilton is not for me.. Great idea though! Happy Fiesta Friday 101

  5. I love any blue cheese but I am not sure about ice cream. Guess I will just have to get out my cuisinart ice cream maker and give it a try ๐Ÿ™‚

      hi Judi
      I wasn’t sure but the cream and honey worked really well, if you don’t want to make ice cream I think the cheese, cream and the honey. Stilton is every so slightly sharp and the cream mellows it so nicely! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think this must be so rich and flavourful! This is genius, Petra!

    • petra08 says:

      hi Julianna
      You don’t need a lot of the ice cream to add a lot of flavour and it is so nice with the shaved celery! Classic flavours ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    This sounds amazing! I never even thought about savoury ice cream, but your apples sold it to me โ˜บ

    • petra08 says:

      hi Steffi
      The apples were lovely and crispy, I should have made more of them! It was just an amuse bouche but next time I will make a big salad! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Loretta says:

    Oh love stilton and what a beautiful pairing, so unusually creative Petra!

  9. Hilda says:

    I was just thinking about making a savoury ice cream very recently – can’t remember now what I came up with, but I do remember thinking it would be very original. So I was delighted to find your idea for a salad which sounds both original and very tempting.

    • petra08 says:

      hi Hilda
      Oh I can’t wait to see a savoury ice cream from you, there are not enough of them! I am sure I will make more of them, I just need to have a think of new combinations, I think it needs crispy textures, there are no limits are there?! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Interesting creation.. I have never thought of savoury ice-cream before. Looks wonderful! Happy Fiesta Friday!

    • petra08 says:

      hi Ahila
      I have never made it before but will aim to keep that ice cream machine going with more sweet and savoury recipes! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Wow! Savoury ice cream works for me!!

  12. Sounds such a fantastic idea! And looks a lovely salad too. I know my River Cottage veg book has a couple of veggie ice creams – beetroot is one, I think the other avocado but could be wrong. They are sweet, though, from memory. I will have to take a look again!

    • petra08 says:

      hi Caroline
      Beetroot sounds very tempting! And I bet the colour would be amazing! I have seen a few avocado ice creams but yes they all have sugar in them and I like the thought of savoury. It needs a lot more exploring I think!
      Am glad you like the salad, it was a perfect starter as so easy to pre prepare and just scoop out when the guests arrived! ๐Ÿ™‚
