Rocket, pear, parmesan & walnut salad

This recipe for rocket, pear, parmesan & walnut salad is one of my favourite salads in summer. Equally as good with blue cheese instead of parmesan.

Serves 4-6 as a side

On a personal note…

  • This salad is also great as it is for lunch.
  • My favourite dishes to pair it with are pizzas, pastas or other Italian foods.
  • For a change, I love to swap the fresh parmesan for a creamy blue cheese or gorgonzola.
  • Use a vegetable peeler to make parmesan cheese shavings easily.
