Recipe by Is This Really Nece

This is an adaptation of a Ross Dobson recipe. Spicy and very quick to make. The golden syrup gives an interesting twist to the recipe (the original used maple syrup). Use a good peppery (Spanish style) olive oil. Great picknick food: drizzle the cut pears with a bit of lemon juice and combine with rucola and walnuts, and add pre-made dressing and cheese during the picknick.
