1. First, Peel and core the pears. Next, smear with a little lemon juice to prevent them turning brown.2. Make the salad dressing: Put the vinegar and a good pinch of salt in a screw-top jar and shake until the salt has desolved. Add the mustard and walnut oil, then shake again to emulsify - the emulsion will hold for ten minutes or so, but give it another shake or two just beforeadding it to the salad.3. Assemble the salad: slice the pears lengthwise into thin segments and place them rustically on four serving plates along with the roquette, then scatter over the bruised walnuts. Drizzle with the vinaigrette. 4. Using a potato peeler, shave the parmesan over the salad, then `dust'' with a little ground black pepper.
