Caramelised Pear and Rocket (Arugula) Salad With Blue Cheese

Total Time

This is just so simple and easy to do but is full of flavour as well. I did use pine nuts when I made this and they worked out quite well. I would suggest a good robust blue for this or Gorgonzola.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the butter, vinegar and sugar in a frying pan over medium heat.
  2. When butter is melted add the pear and walnuts and cook for 4-6 minutes until the pear is just soft.
  3. Place the rocket on serving plates and top with the pear and walnuts.
  4. Spoon over the pan juices and top with the blue cheese.

So good! Loved all the flavors with this salad. Served with roasted chicken and sausage dressing.

This is delicious, easy and healthy. Love it. I omitted the nuts as I'm allergic to nuts. I added some feta instead. The warm pear slices were delicious. I sliced each pear into 8 pieces and that was the perfect size to cook 5 minutes and not have the pear fall apart. I will make this again. Thank you.
