4 handfuls rocket (300-350g)

1 pear, finely sliced

1 lemon, juiced

2 tbsp olive oil

60g shaved parmesan

flaked sea salt


In a medium-sized bowl, add the rocket, pear, lemon juice and olive oil.

Give it good toss and put in a shallow serving bowl.

Add the shaved parmesan and season with salt.

This salad goes well alongside pasta dishes such as chorizo vongole with squid ink pasta.
