Crunchy Pear Walnut Salad with a Mustard Orange Dressing
Crunchy Pear and Walnut Salad with a Mustard Orange Dressing. A healthy, delicious mix of nuts, dried fruit, pear and fresh greens set this salad head and shoulders above the competition.
This pear walnut salad combines two distinct types of flavour – we mix the naturally tangy, bitter taste of the rocket or lamb’s lettuce with the sweetness of pear and dried dates, cranberries or raisins and top it off with a hint of orange.
It somehow tastes light and wintery too – perfect for brightening up chilly days or gloomy evenings. If you’re feeling you’ve slightly overindulged during the holiday period (like most of us, I imagine), this is a great way to get back to a better eating regime. Boring salads suck and are liable to put you off them – so how about one with added walnuts, balsamic cream and a little dijon mustard mixed together? Sounds (and tastes!) good to me.
