Warm Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad

Warm Pear, Walnut & Blue Cheese Salad - A Cookbook collection

A simple take on a classic combination. This makes a delicious starter.

Serves 2

  • 30g chopped walnuts
  • 2-3 pears, peeled, cored and sliced or chopped into chunks
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • A knob of butter – approx 30g
  • 2 handfuls rocket leaves
  • 100g blue cheese crumbled, I use Cambozola, it’s a mild blue cheese with a creamy texture


  • Once the pears are prepared, pour the lemon and honey over them and mix well.
  • Put a dry non stick frying pan on a medium heat. Toss the chopped walnuts in the pan and move all the time so they don’t burn. Once toasted remove and set aside.
  • In the same pan melt the butter and pour in the pears, lemon and honey.
  • Turn the pears every so often and just cook until the pears start to go soft and the honey caramelises.
  • Put the rocket on 2 plates and arrange the blue cheese and pears on top. Scatter over the walnuts and eat immediately.
