Unfortunately, this sounded better than it tasted. Normally I'd try the recipe again just to make sure I hadn't made a mistake but this recipe is simple so I know no error was made. The flavors simply didn't meld for me.

Superlight and delicious salad!

Aragula, pears and walnuts fits very well together. The pomegranate molasses as dressing is the perfect touch to this fabulous salad!

Presents very well and is fast done. Thanks Jan!

Reviewed for Make My Recipe Tag Game in the Aus//NZ Forum- wonderful salad. The sweet pear, nuts, sharp molasses, bitey cheese and bitterness of the rocket were a great combo. I loved this salad, but wasn't enjoyed by my kids....maybe next time they can have a creamy dressing and adults the pomegranite dressing. Photos being posted.
