Preparation of the pear and rocket salad recipe

  1. Start by washing the rocket and then dry it carefully and place it in a bowl.
  2. Wash the pears, dry them and peel them by cutting them first in half, then in quarters and finally into thin slices.
  3. Add the pears to the bowl with the rocket and mix them gently so as not to break them.
  4. Take the cheese and cut it into flakes (you can do it with a knife or a potato peeler). Add the same to the bowl and mix again.
  5. Season with pepper (salt is not needed due to the presence of cheese) and add oil and vinegar, mixing carefully. The salad is finally ready to be served and enjoyed.

For an even more delicious variant you can opt for the salad with rocket, pears, parmesan and walnuts. To do this, just chop 40 g of walnuts and add them together with the cheese. The salad will be even more tasty and perfect as an appetizer or to accompany a second course of white meat or fish.


The salad can be stored in the fridge for 1 day . What matters is to place it in a tightly closed airtight container or, alternatively, on a plate covered with cling film.
