For the dressing:
Start with the dressing:
In a bowl soften the Gorgonzola, using a spatula, to a creamy consistency. Add the warm water and the vinegar whisking everything very well until smooth. After that gradually whisk in the olive oil. Season to taste with black pepper.
To assemble the salad:
Place on a serving plate or in a large salad bowl the chicory. Halve, core and finely slice the pear and arrange its pieces on top of the chicory. Crumble in your hands the cheese and scatter it along with the walnuts over the chicory and pear.
Drizzle the dressing over the salad and sprinkle over the chives.
*Personally I like to add a few drops of an aged balsamic vinegar to finish off the salad.
