roquefort and pear salad with radicchio

a bit of sliced radicchio, some crumbled roquefort, a ripe, sweet pear cubed and a nice dressing of olive oil and white wine vinegar. maybe some toasted walnuts.

if you've ever been to dinner at ours, you were probably given this salad at some point. it's a nice vegetarian starter and you can substitute chicory for radicchio (it has to be something bitter), and any blue cheese for roquefort (have made it with dolcelatte, stilton, get the picture) and apple for pear though make sure it's very ripe and not too acidy.
