Pear And Prosciutto Salad

Elevate your salad game with the exquisite Pear and Prosciutto Salad, a delightful dish that is sure to impress both as a starter and a light meal on its own.


  • 1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus 2 tsp
  • 415g tin pear quarters in juice, drained (juice reserved)
  • 80g pack watercress, spinach & rocket salad
  • 84g pack prosciutto slices
  • 100g reduced-fat mozzarella
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard?


  • Toss the onion with 2 tsp oil to coat, then griddle or fry in a dry nonstick pan over a high heat for 7-8 mins, turning halfway, until softened and lightly charred. Set aside.
  • Drain the pears, reserving the juice, and pat dry with kitchen paper. Griddle or fry in a dry nonstick pan over a high heat for 1-2 mins each side or until grill lines or dark caramelised marks appear. Set aside.
  • To assemble the salad, tip the leaves onto a large platter. Roughly tear over the prosciutto and mozzarella; nestle in the griddled pears and onion wedges.
  • For the dressing, whisk together 2 tsp reserved pear juice with the mustard in a small bowl. Whisk in 1 tbsp olive oil until smooth and slightly thickened. Drizzle over the salad and season with ground black pepper.
