"So my favourite kind of salad would be a spinach, arugula mix of leaves, pine nuts, tomatoes…I have sometimes put a little blue cheese, I love blue cheese, my husband loves blue cheese. It’s an acquired taste so I wouldn’t serve that to my guests.

Catherine Zeta-Jones loves adding blue cheese to her salads

"I like to throw some dried cranberries in and my dressing, extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar. I sometimes put some mustard in there…I have a salad every meal other than breakfast because I just adore it."

We are hungry just hearing about Catherine's delicious lunch, however we are sure that not everyone will be so keen to add blue cheese to the dish! Many other celebrities are fans of the controversial cheese, such as Cameron Diaz and Chrissy Teigen, who also enjoys the delicacy in a salad.

Catherine went on to say that she will often cook chicken breast, cod or a stuffed aubergine to accompany her salad, keeping it nice and light for the afternoon.
