Ingredients
Serves: 4 

  • Poppy Seed Dressing

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • Salad
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 3 ripe pears (preferably red or pink-flushed)
  • 1 head witlof, separated into leaves

  • 4 slices pumpernickel or walnut bread, toasted

Directions
Preparation:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. First make the dressing by placing all the ingredients in a screw-top jar and shaking until well combined. As the Roquefort is quite salty, there is no need to add any salt.
  2. Cut the celery into 5cm lengths then slice again lengthways into thin strips.
  3. Core and thinly slice the pears lengthways and place in a large bowl with the witlof leaves, salad leaves, nuts and celery. Add the dressing and toss well to coat evenly. Crumble the Roquefort over the salad.
  4. Place a slice of the toasted pumpernickel or walnut bread on each plate and pile the salad evenly over the top. Serve immediately.
