Baby Artichoke Blue Cheese Cannellini Bean & Lemon Salad

I do like easy to prepare cooking, this recipe doesn’t get any simpler, and it looks very impressive. The blue cheese can be omitted if you want or changed for a different cheese altogether such as Cheddar, Lancashire or even Caerphilly. I use Cropwell Bishop as it has a very creamy flavour and waxy texture.
