  1. Dry-fry the walnuts and seed mix in a frying pan for 3-4 mins over a medium-low heat. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, put the oil, vinegar and mustard in a small bowl or jug, season and whisk to combine.
  3. Put the watercress, chicory and plums in a large bowl and toss with the dressing. Divide between 4 plates and scatter over the cheese, toasted walnuts and seeds.

Tip: Use a vegetarian blue cheese if you prefer – Dolcelatte would work well.
