Very tasty. I made this with new potatoes instead of the garlic bread, which I think was a good contrast for the strong flavour of the Stilton. I really enjoyed all the different textures and complementing flavours. Yum!

I could not found chicory either so I replaced with chinese lettuce and this worked really well! I cooked it for a group of friends all of whom said it was very yummy!

Could not find chicory in the shops so just put baby leaf mix in instead, also used feta cheese instead of stilton. friends thought it was absolutely yummy. Hubby said its the best salad he's tasted.
