Method Prep:20min › Ready in:20min
Heat a large non-stick pan over low heat; add sugar and water and cook until the sugar begins to melt. Increase the heat and cook until the caramel is a dark amber colour (being very careful as mixture will be extremely hot). Remove from heat, add the walnut halves and swirl pan to coat the nuts in the caramel. Transfer the walnut halves to a sheet of greaseproof paper and leave to cool and harden; break nuts into pieces.
Place salad leaves in a large bowl; add pears and crumbled blue cheese. Sprinkle caramelised walnuts on top and drizzle with olive oil to suit your taste; toss salad well and serve.
