Rocket, pear, parmesan & walnut salad

This recipe for rocket, pear, paremesan & 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


  • 3 large handfuls of rocket
  • 1 pear thinly sliced
  • 100g parmesan cheese shavings*
  • 2 handfuls of walnuts
  • olive oil to drizzle
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • sprinkling of ground sea salt


  1. Arrange rocket on a plate or bowl and top with sliced pear, cheese and walnuts.
  2. Drizzle over olive oil and juiced lemon and finish with a sprinkling of ground sea salt.
  3. Serve with extra lemon wedges.

*Make parmesan cheese shavings easily with a veggie peeler

On a personal note…

I quite like this salad just as it is for lunch but it is also my favourite salad to pair with pizzas, pastas or other Italian foods. For a change, I love to swap the fresh parmesan for a creamy blue cheese or gorgonzola.
