1

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.

2

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.

3

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.

4

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