DIRECTIONS

  • To make the dressing whisk the two oils, mustard, vinegar, sugar & lemon juice together well.
  • Season well with freshly ground black pepper & a touch of salt, the blue cheese is quite salty already.
  • Keep the dressing at room temperature until serving. The dressing can be made up to 1 week ahead of time.
  • To toast the walnuts, heat up a roomy frying pan over a high heat & add the walnuts. Pan-toast them for about 5-10 minutes, stirring around constantly until they are a deep golden colour but NOT dark brown or burnt! (You must keep an eye on them at all times.).
  • Take off the heat & cool.
  • Wash or wipe the chicory heads and cut 1" to 2" off the base of each one.
  • Separate the leaves gently and wash again if necessary.
  • Place the leaves into an attractive flat dish or on to a serving platter.
  • Crumble over the blue cheese & pour over the dressing.
  • Scatter the toasted walnuts over the top & serve immediately with crusty bread.
