Pear, Walnut And Goat's Cheese Salad

Having had this for lunch last Sunday when I dragged BF to gorgeous italian eatery Dunne & Cresensci in Dundrum, I really wanted to try and re-create this very yummy salad at home. And considering it required no cooking at all and very few ingredients, sure I could not think of anything easier to make for dinner this evening.

Here is how to try it at home  - which you should, by the way.

Pear, walnut and goat's cheese salad

Mixed leaves lettuce (I used one of those convenient pre-washed bags of salad you get anywhere)
Goat's cheese (Chevre)
Extra virgin olive oil

Toast the walnuts for a couple of minutes in a hot pan, then stir them in a mix of the olive oil and a little honey

Spread the salad on two (or however many you are cooking for) plates

Cut the pears into wedges, spread them over the salad

Crumble the goat's cheese on top

Drizzle over some olive oil

Toss the walnuts in their sticky mixture over the two plates


(Oh, and I had an extra large glass of rosé wine with my salad, which made it even nicer!)
