Pear cheese salad

Pear and cheese is a classic combination. And I decided to have it for a light dinner. The wilted rocket leaves gave a hint of bitterness, one of my favorite flavors cutting through the sweetness and richness of the pear and cheese. The honey and lemon dressing added the tartness to cut through the creamy rich flavors. A play of simple clean flavors made it a great salad.
