Jamie Oliver - Watercress, Rocket, Sweet Pear, Walnut and Parmesan Salad

What a pukka combination, simple
and classy. Don`t try to make this
when you feel like it, make it when
you can find perfect pears and
watercress, otherwise it will taste
naff.
For one person I normally use
around half a pear 2 big handfuls of
watercress and 2 big handfuls of
rocket. If the skins are nice just give
them a wash, if not remove with a
peeler. Then cut them in half and deseed. It doesn`t really
matter how you cut them up. Sometimes in big rough chunks,
maybe sliced up or even grated. Then place into the bowl with
the watercress and rocket. The pepperiness of the leaves works
so well with the sweetness of the pear. Drizzle with a good
extra virgin olive oil just to coat, a small squeeze of lemon juice
(because the pear juice is slightly acidic but very tasty), and
season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss all
this together and serve. Shave over some Parmesan or
Pecorino, crumble your nuts over and tuck in. I love this salad
with roasted meat or as a starter on its own.
