Pear and Roasted Walnut Salad

About this recipe: This is one of my favourite recipes for a tasty autumn / winter salad. I love the contrast of sweet, ripe pears and a spicy vinaigrette. I used lollo rosso but you can use any other kind of lettuce. A fresh baguette goes really well with it.


Serves: 2 

  • 75g chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 lettuce, such as frisee or lollo rosso
  • 2 ripe pears, cored and diced
  • 25ml olive oil
  • 25ml balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • freshly ground salt and pepper to taste

Prep:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Toast the walnuts in a dry pan over medium heat until golden-brown. Mind they don't get too dark or they will turn bitter.
  2. Tear the lettuce into bite-sized pieces and place on two serving plates. Dice the pears and lay on the salad. Sprinkle the roasted walnuts on top. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and serve immediately.
