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. 

Ingredients

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

Directions

  1. Mix honey, extra virgin olive oil and white wine vinegar.
