Found this online a long time ago but have changed the recipe to add the caramelized balsamic vinegar. The balsamic will thicken on reducing.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 bunch rocket (Aguilar)
  • 2 pears, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 12 cup goat cheese, crumbled (or shaved Parmesan or crumbled feta if you prefer)
  • balsamic vinegar
  • black pepper


  1. Sprinkle pear slices with a little lemon juice and arrange over rocket on a medium sized platter.
  2. Sprinkle with cheese and drizzle with the caramelized balsamic vinegar.
  3. Serve immediately with ground black pepper.
  4. To caramelize balsamic vinegar, simply reduce a 500 ml bottle of Balsamic Vinegar down to about 150 ml (2/3 cup) over high heat for approx 15 minutes - it will keep for several weeks in the pantry or you can caramelize less to use for this salad only.
