WWDH - Pear, Fennel and Bleu Cheese Salad


This week's Wednesday with Donna Hay pick comes from Kayte, who chose the Pear, Fennel and Bleu Cheese Salad from Modern Classics I.

This is a really tasty little salad that is simple to put together - just toss rocket (I used baby spinach), pear slices, baby fennel slices and blue cheese together, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, serve with a piece of toast, and Bob's your uncle.

It is a meal in itself, or you can serve it on the side.

To see what Kayte, Margaret, Chaya and Sarah thought of this salad, visit their websites.

I had a pear and walnut salad at a fancy restaurant once and loved it!

I really like all the different elements of this salad - fennel ranks as one of my favorite vegetables and it sounds delicious when paired with pears and blue cheese!

I was so glad to see fennel in this salad, too. Delicious. What a simple but tasty combination.

Oh, I think spinach in this salad would be really good. You and Sarah both cut your fennel so nicely, I have no clue what I am doing wrong, but I clearly cannot cut fennel properly. Practice I must i guess. Yours other things look properly cut as well...mine looked like a big mess but it tasted wonderful!
