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.

75g chopped walnuts

25ml olive oil

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.
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.
