Rocket, Pear, Goats Cheese & Radicchio Salad


This salad is so easy and delicious it should be filed as your 'go to' salad recipe. Just make sure your pear is firm & sweet, and the cheese is soft & creamy - these flavours are all made to go together.

Rocket, Pear, Goats Cheese & Radicchio Salad


  • 2 pears, cut into wedges and cored
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • 1 shallot, finely sliced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 head of radicchio, broken into pieces
  • 2 large handfuls of rocket
  • 100g goat’s cheese, crumbled
  • 60g roasted walnuts
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  1. In a large bowl toss the pears with the lemon juice.
  2. Mix together the shallot, honey and olive oil. Add to the pears with some sea salt and gently combine. Toss in the radicchio and transfer to a large platter.
  3. Add the goats cheese and crush the walnuts over the salad and finish with drizzled olive oil.
  4. Note: for a more substantial salad drape some prosciutto over the salad.


    Serves: 4
