Healthy and with some strong flavours this is a perfect salad to team up with a boldly flavoured BBQ meat or eat alone for lunch.

Janet Mitchell

Serves: 6 

  • 2 pears, halved, cored and sliced lengthways
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 3 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, cut into 3cm pieces
  • 4 cups torn green lettuce
  • 4 cups torn radicchio or other red lettuce
  • 2 cups watercress leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced cucumber, halved
  • 2 tablespoons blue cheese, crumbled

Preparation:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Toss the pears with 2 tablespoons of the buttermilk in a small bowl to prevent browning. Whisk together the remaining buttermilk, the vinegar, and a pinch each of salt and pepper in another small bowl. Stir in the chives.
  2. Toss together the lettuces, watercress and cucumber in a large bowl. Arrange the greens on plates and top with the blue cheese and the sliced pears. Drizzle the salad with a little of the buttermilk dressing, if you like, and serve the remainder separately.
