    Strawberry toasted pecan and Gorgonzola salad

    • Preparation time: 10
    • Cooking time: 3-5 minutes
    • Total time: 13-15 minutes

    Serves: 4


    100g pecan halves
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 tsp red wine vinegar
    2 tbsp finely shredded basil leaves
    1 small shallot, finely sliced
    225g pack essential Waitrose Strawberries, hulled and thickly sliced
    120g pack Waitrose Rocket Salad
    100g Waitrose Gorgonzola PDO Dolce, cubed


    1. Warm a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the pecans and cook, turning them frequently, for 3–5 minutes until lightly toasted.

    2. Mix the olive oil, red wine vinegar, basil and shallot together in the base of a large salad bowl. Season to taste, bearing in mind that the cheese you are adding is quite salty.

    3. Place the strawberries into the bowl together with the rocket salad, warm pecans and Gorgonzola. Toss well and serve immediately with crusty bread.
