Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F, gas mark 4, 180°C (150°C fan-assisted).
  2. Pre-line a baking tray with a My Relationship with Food silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Slice pears in half lengthwise and remove cores from pears to create a hole for filling using a teaspoon. Place pears, hole side up on the baking tray and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon. Divide the walnuts amongst the holes and drizzle the honey over the walnuts. Place in the pre-heated oven and cook for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the pears from the oven and leave to cool. When you are ready to serve, using a large serving platter, scatter the rocket on the base of the plater, then layer up the salad by carefully alternating with the pears, crumbled blue cheese and beetroot. Drizzle any excess honey from the baking tray over the salad together with 1 tbsp. olive oil. Season lightly with cracked black pepper and sea salt.
Recipe Notes

LISA’S TIP – Roasting pears intensifies their flavour while making them soft and tender. Choose firm pears, such as conference, for this recipe. The pears can be roasted in advance and refrigerated. Bring them to room temperature before assembling the salad.
