  1. Using a mandoline, thinly slice the apples crosswise into 1/8-inch thick slices. Arrange the slices in overlapping circles among four large plates. In a medium bowl, mix together the walnut oil and parsley. Using a pastry brush coat the sliced apples. Squeeze one wedge of lemon over the apples on each plate. Sprinkle each plate with the toasted walnuts and cocoa bean nibs and season to taste with salt and pepper. With a vegetable peeler shave the cheese over the apples and serve immediately.
