Ingredients

  • 250g pouch Wholegrain, Wild & Red Rice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 Conference Pears, peeled, cored and quartered
  • 2 bulb/s red chicory, leaves separated
  • 2 bulb/s white chicory, leaves separated
  • 200g pack feta
  • 50g blanched hazelnuts, toasted and roughly chopped

Dressing

  • 1 lemon, juice
  • tbsp clear honey

Method

  1. Heat the rice according to the pack instructions. Meanwhile, put a large, non-stick frying pan over a high heat and add the oil, then the pears. Brown for about 2 minutes, until slightly charred on each cut side. Remove from the heat.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the dressing ingredients and lightly toss through the rice and chicory. On a large platter, arrange the chicory leaves, rice and pears. Break up the feta, half into bigger chunks and half crumbled a little more finely. Toss through the salad, sprinkle over the hazelnuts and serve.
