The classic combination of pears and stilton cheese is a perfect combination of sweet and salty. Served with an aromatic balsamic dressing, pomegranate seeds, rocket leaves and pecans, this recipe is an easy light lunch to take with you on the go.
Makes 1 Kilner® Snack On The Go Jar, but simply multiply the quantities to make extra portions.

  • 1 Sunblush Pear, cored and sliced
  • 50g Stilton, cubed
