We have been eating this salad a lot recently, the flavours just really work together so well and is perfect as the weather is warming up. The below serves 4.
✔️ 4 firm, ripe pears, sliced lengthways in to 1cm slices
✔️ 2 tbsp olive oil
✔️ 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
✔️ 1 tbsp honey
✔️ 250g bag mixed leaf salad
✔️ 150g blue cheese, crumbled
✔️ handful of walnuts, roughly chopped
✔️ 4 slices of thin Parma ham
- Put the pears in a bowl and drizzle with 1 tsp of the oil. Heat a pan, then cook the pears, in batches, for 1 min on each side. Set aside to cool.
- Using the same pan, fry the parma ham until crispy then break up in to rough pieces.
- Mix the remaining oil, vinegar and honey. Toss the pears, leaves and cheese, walnuts and Parma ham, divide between 4 plates and drizzle with the dressing.
