Prepare the avocados.
Cut the avocados in half and peel them. Remove the stones and cut the flesh into thin slices. Sprinkle the slices with the lemon juice and season with salt.

Peel the pears and then quarter and core them. Cut the pears into slices and sprinkle over the remaining lemon juice.

Make the dressing.
Put the oils, vinegar, mustard and seasoning into a shaker and shake all the ingredients together well. Pour the dressing over the salad leaves and toss together.

Place a little salad on each plate and scatter over the slices of avocado and pear. Put a baguette on each plate and sprinkle over with a little pepper. Serve immediately.
