This is a super quick, super tasty salad. It's amazing how well stilton and pears work together. My wife doesn't like stilton at all, however she loves this salad, as the sweetness of the fruit offsets the strong flavour of the blue cheese. It's so quick and easy that you have to give it a try!

First off you need to make the dressing, so put one tablespoon of red wine vinegar into your small bowl or jar, along with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of salt, pepper and sugar. Give everything a whisk or a shake until it's emulsified together.

Now take your mixing bowl and pour in the dressing. Now you need to roll the dressing around the bowl, coating the insides, as in the second photo to the right, before throwing in the salad and tossing together with your fingers.

All that's left to do is add the pears and stilton, toss together to mix through and divide amongst two plates or bowls! How easy was that!

I hope that you enjoy it.
