Separate the lettuce leaves, then tear them into large pieces and place in a large salad bowl.
Cut the apples into quarters and remove the core. Slice them into thinner wedges, then into even-sized chunks. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice. Roughly chop the blue cheese into small dice.
To make the dressing, mix the crème fraîche or sour cream with the remaining lemon juice, then season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Add the chunks of apple and cheese to the lettuce, drizzle with the creamy dressing, toss well, then serve the salad in individual bowls with extra seasoning, if you like.
