Recipe: Rocket, pear, walnut and blue cheese salad

img_2281This was something I got while out for coffee today. I hadn’t thought of this combo for a salad but it was delicious! So I looked out a recipe so I can try it for myself. 


  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 pears
  • 3 cups rocket leaves
  • 100g blue cheese
  • 3/4 cup walnuts lightly toasted


  1. Mix honey, extra virgin olive oil and white wine vinegar.
  2. Remove cores from the pears and slice thinly, leaving skin on. Place pears in a bowl and pour over the dressing.
  3. Combine rocket leaves, crumbled blue cheese and walnuts on a serving platter.
  4. Scatter salad with ripe pears, drizzle over extra dressing and serve.
