Pear & Grilled Asparagus Salad w. Candied Walnuts

45 Minutes | Serves 5 People

We love grilled asparagus, especially paired with candied walnuts and pear. Perfect serves with grilled lamb chops or lamb kofta - or even served on its own. 

Salad Ingredients  

Salad Ingredients:

  • 2 x Ripe pears, cut into thin strips 
  • 1 bunch of baby asparagus, cut in half 
  • ½ cup walnuts, roughly chopped 
  • Drizzle of honey 
  • Pinch of salt 
  • 3 large handfuls of red oakleaf lettuce, washed & roughly torn 

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses 
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil 
  • Pinch of salt 


  • Handful of edible flowers 
  • Handful of micro herbs 
  • Chives - finely chopped 
  • 1 x Pomegranate, opened and deseeded 


  1. Line a baking tray with a sheet of baking paper, add your walnuts to the pan and drizzle with honey and sprinkle with salt. 

  2. Pop in the oven on 150 degrees until roasted and golden brown. Watch these closely as they can turn and burn quite quickly. 

  3. Heat up a griddle pan or saucepan over medium heat. Ensure the pan is hot, and add olive oil and asparagus to the pan. Rotate and flip as needed until cooked through.

  4. For the dressing, pour all ingredients into a jar and shake to combine until emulsified and combined.

  5. Now is time to assemble the salad, Start with your base of lettuce, then add the pears, asparagus, top with your garnish ingredients and drizzle with your dressing. Season as required.

This slow cooked pork scotch is a dish that just keeps on giving. Cook it one night alongside a zingy salad and stuff it into rolls the next. It’s packed with flavour, it’s succulent and it’s downright delicious! The acidity from the pickle is perfect for cutting through the richness of the pork.
