    125g gorgonzola dolce
    3 tbsp crème fraîche
    2½ tsp red wine vinegar
    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve
    1 tbsp finely chopped red onion
    2 bushy tarragon sprigs, leaves finely chopped
    2 suffolk pink apples, thinly sliced
    1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced
    100g watercress


    1. Crumble 25g gorgonzola into a large bowl; beat to a paste. Add the crème fraîche and vinegar, season and beat until smooth. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, then stir in the onion and tarragon (add a splash of water if it’s too thick).

    2. Add the apple and fennel and mix well. Gently fold in most of the watercress, then divide between 4 plates with the remaining leaves. Break the remaining cheese into small chunks and scatter over each plate. Trickle a little more oil over each one and finish with a grinding of black pepper. LH
