Heat a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the walnuts and toast, stirring, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl. Return the frying pan to a medium heat and add the brown sugar, the water and a pinch of salt. Cook until melted and bubbling. Return the walnuts to the pan and cook, stirring, until the caramel has thickened, 2-3 minutes. Spread out on a sheet of baking paper and leave to cool.

TIP: Cooking the caramel fully will ensure the coating is crunchy and not chewy.


While the walnuts are cooling, thinly slice the pear and avocado. Pick and finely slice the mint. Roughly chop the candied walnuts. Juice 1/2 the lemon and cut the remaining into wedges.


In a medium bowl, combine the lemon juice, a pinch of salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Add the spinach & rocket mix, pear and avocado. Toss to combine.


Transfer the pear, rocket and avocado salad to a serving dish. Sprinkle over the mint and candied walnuts. Serve with the lemon wedges.
