Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180C - Gas Mark 4)

Step 2

Spread the walnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast until lightly brown - about 4 minutes - watch closely so that they do not scorch.

Step 3

In a small saucepan over medium heat, gently warm the olive oil with the onion, walnuts, olives and garlic. DO NOT bring oil to a boil. Remove from the heat and cool for a moment.

Step 4

Place the blue cheese in an attractive serving bowl (2 1/2 - 3 cups capacity).

Step 5

Pour the warm oil mixture over the cheese and stir gently.

Step 6

Add pepper to taste, then let the mixture cool to room temperature.

Serve with toasted baguette rounds and grapes.
