Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

A delicious winter salad you can easily adapt to suit whatever you have in your fridge!



Serves: 4

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 3



  • 200g/9oz mixed salad leaves or baby leaf spinach
  • 55g/2oz walnut pieces
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 100g/3 ½ oz blue cheese
  • 2 medium pears (100g/3 ½ oz)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


How to:

  1. Put the walnut pieces into a small pan with the sugar. Heat gently, stirring continuously, for 2-3 minutes until the sugar melts. Turn the nuts out onto a plate to stop further cooking.
  2. Core and slice the pears, and put into a bowl with the lemon juice to prevent them from discolouring. Crumble or slice the cheese.
  3. Divide the salad leaves between four serving plates (or make one large salad to share). Arrange the cheese, pears and walnuts on top. Dress each plate with half a tablespoon of olive oil and serve immediately.



Make with apples, use feta or smoked cheddar instead of blue cheese (but blue cheese is the best!).


Extra flavour

Add a pinch of flaked sea salt to the walnuts and sugar before heating.
