Beet and Pear Salad Recipe

This beet and pear salad recipe is a bright and fresh appetizer or side dish, with mixed greens, sliced pears, tender beets, and walnuts, tossed with a 5-minute honey vinaigrette dressing. It’s both simple and elegant, with a nice flavor combination from the earthy beets, sweet pears, and honey.

I absolutely love making this salad when beets are in season, it makes the perfect starter or light lunch. Serve this salad with some toasted simple sourdough or alongside your favorite protein for a nice meal.

This salad has a fantastic flavor combination of pears and beets- they balance each other so nicely tossed together with greens. I use cooked beets for this recipe. You can buy them canned, or cook fresh beets in the Instant Pot which is what I always do!

Don’t be intimidated by making your own salad dressing, either! This super simple vinaigrette is made with pantry staple ingredients and only takes 5 minutes to make. Once I started making my own salad dressings at home, I haven’t bought any bottled dressings from the store. It’s amazing what a fresh dressing does to a salad!

Is There a Plant-Based Substitute for Honey?

You can substitute out the honey in this recipe for agave nectar or maple syrup. I prefer agave nectar, it’s my go-to kitchen sweetener because it’s thick, absolutely delicious, and buying organic agave is inexpensive online (compared to other organic sweeteners).  It also bakes well, so I like to add it to my baked goods.

How Do I Make This Beet and Arugula Salad Recipe?

  1. Add the greens to a large serving bowl. Top with the sliced pears, cooked and sliced beets, and walnuts. 
  2. In a small mixing bowl or mason jar (I prefer using a jar), add all the salad dressing ingredients and mix well to combine. 
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad, and toss well so everything is evenly coated in dressing.
  4. Add fresh black pepper to the top of the salad, and serve immediately.

This vegetarian pear and beet salad is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegetarian cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. 

By building meals around vegetarian pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make better meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite plant-based pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis.
