Rocket and pear salad is one of those classic dishes that goes with just about anything and which I could also happily eat by the bowlful for lunch. Most of the ingredients are interchangeable, as it’s really all about the combination of sweet fruit with creamy cheese, bitter leaves and crunchy nuts. You could replace the pear with apple, swap the almonds for walnuts, and exchange the parmesan for crumbled goat’s cheese—any of these variations would be equally delicious.
