I’m really into beets and mint together. It adds such a freshness while turning down the that famous beet earthiness.
The pear was a great addition, adding sweetness and a different texture that really complemented the beets.
Here’s what I did…
- ~20 fresh mint leaves (1/4 tsp dried mint should work)
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Healthy pinch of salt
- 8.8 oz (250g) roasted or cooked beets (I buy them cooked from Costco, but you can used canned or roast your own)
- 1 Bartlett pear
- 1 oz crumbled goat cheese
- 1 oz (28g) walnuts
Whisk and smash the mint, honey, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt to make the dressing
