Heat the rice according to the pack instructions. Meanwhile, put a large, non-stick frying pan over a high heat and add the oil, then the pears. Brown for about 2 minutes, until slightly charred on each cut side. Remove from the heat.
In a large bowl, mix together the dressing ingredients and lightly toss through the rice and chicory. On a large platter, arrange the chicory leaves, rice and pears. Break up the feta, half into bigger chunks and half crumbled a little more finely. Toss through the salad, sprinkle over the hazelnuts and serve.
