Roquefort Pear Salad

Pears and roquefort are a classic combination, as they really go well together. Use any blue cheese if you can't get roquefort. Roasted or caramelised nuts are the final touch to give the salad a very pleasant crunch.

  • If making the caramelised pecans, start with that. Heat the pecans, the sugar and the salt together on medium heat, continuously stirring, until the sugar has melted and the pecans are coated in caramel. Transfer the caramelised pecans onto a sheet of baking paper to allow them to cool. Proceed with care, as the pecans will be very hot.
  • Make the dressing by whisking together the walnut or olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustad and crushed garlic. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
  • Finally, assemble by layering the shredded lettuce, pear wedges, spring onion slices, avocado cubes and blue cheese crumble in a large serving bowl. Pour the dressing over, top with roasted and salted almonds or caramelised pecan nuts and serve.
