Toss the pears with 2 tablespoons of the buttermilk in a small bowl to prevent browning. Whisk together the remaining buttermilk, the vinegar, and a pinch each of salt and pepper in another small bowl. Stir in the chives.
Toss together the lettuces, watercress and cucumber in a large bowl. Arrange the greens on plates and top with the blue cheese and the sliced pears. Drizzle the salad with a little of the buttermilk dressing, if you like, and serve the remainder separately.
