Salad with pear, feta and pecans

If you are tired of the same old lettuce, tomato, onion combination - try this!

Dump a pile of leaves in a bowl, I used a prewashed 4 leaf mix and added some rocket from a friends garden for extra zing.

Slice up a pear into lovely matchsticks - leave the core in (thanks Jamie Oliver for your clever hint). I used a Corella pear because they looked so pretty.

Toss the pear over the salad greens. Then add feta. You could crumble it over but we had danish feta which is extra creamy and becomes sticky rather than crumbly so I chopped it into small pieces.
Coarsely chop about 2 tablespoons of pecans and sprinkle that over too.
Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. I used this find. It is infused with lemon which adds extra zing. Love it.
Squeeze the juice of a lemon all over. Season with freshly ground salt and pepper.
Ta Da! All done. Four serves at 4 ProPoints per person.
We served it with turkey breast, radishes and green tomato chutney - delicious lunch!
