Pear, Arugula and Blue Cheese Salad



Recipe adapted from Donna hay


  • 1 small whole grain  baguette, sliced and grilled
  • 4-6 cups arugula or mixed greens of choice
  • 2 baby fennel, thinly sliced
  • 2 pears, thinly sliced
  • blue cheese – As much or as little as you like

Honey Balsamic dressing:

  • 1/4 cup of your favourite balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • salt and pepper to taste

Add all of the above in a small bowl and whisk together. You should have extra dressing…I  recommend pouring it onto a few small plates, and letting your guests dunk their bread!

Slice the baguette and spread with a thin coat of olive oil. Grill until just crispy. Place a few slices of baguette on each plate and then arrange the arugula, blue cheese, fennel and pears. Drizzle with a generous amount of honey balsamic dressing. Serve and enjoy!

*Note – Try topping with some toasted walnuts!
