Elderflower Delight - from the River Cottage Hedgerow Handbook. A most delicious June treat. Double the amount of gelatine stated in the recipe for really firm cubes - otherwise it can turn out a bit soggy.
This substantial salad is something of a River Cottage classic, and a great way to bring together two of autumn’s finest ingredients: mushrooms and squash. Blue cheese is quite delicious here but you could use other cheeses – shavings of Parmesan, a hard goat’s cheese such as Ticklemore, or a firm ewe’s milk cheese such as Berkswell would also work well.
