Heat one tablespoon olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add apples and pears and saute in a single layer, turning once to brown on each side. Remove fruit from pan and set aside. Saute green onions in remaining olive oil, reduce heat to low, and add vinegar and water. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid is reduced by half. Remove from heat and stir in Gorgonzola.
