Grilled pear and pickled walnuts with cheddar on toast

Grilled pear and pickled walnuts with cheddar on toast


  1. Preheat the grill to a medium or high heat.
  2. Put the lemon juice, walnut vinegar, black pepper, salt, garlic and mustard together in a bowl and whisk together. Gradually add the oil as you whisk.
  3. Drizzle some oil over a grill tray and sprinkle it with salt and pepper. Peel and slice the pears widthways and place them on the tray. Grill the pairs for two minutes.
  4. Once cooked, remove the pears and toast one side of the bread. Turn the bread over and put the pear on top of it, along with some pieces of walnut and cheese. Put back in the grill until the cheese has turned golden brown.
  5. Serve topped with some rocket and dressing.
