I made this in about 3 minutes yesterday. I had neighbours coming over for roast chicken and suddenly thought that I ought to make some kind of starter. And had a pear tree outside looking like it might collapse under the weight of hundreds of beautiful green marbled pears. A small bit of nduja in the fridge and I had a feeling it would all go well with some walnuts I had in the store cupboard.
It was one of the nicest salads I have eaten in a long time.
2 pears, ideally still crunchy and crisp
3-4 slices of nduja, chopped
handful walnuts, chopped
2 tblsp chopped flat leaf parsley
juice of 1 lemon
good quality extra virgin olive oil
malvern salt & black pepper
Core and slice the pears as thinly as you can and put them i a bowl with the lemon juice. Add the pieces of chopped walnuts and parsley. sprinkle over some good quality olive oil (about 3 to 4 tblsps), season and serve.
