  • Easy

An easy salad that is made special by the quality of the ingredients and the dressing. Leave the gorgonzola out of the fridge for 30 minutes before you make the salad. Pine nuts and honey are a perfect match for the chicory and cheese. A dash of walnut oil in the dressing works a treat for this dinner-party starter.
