Pear Arugula Salad with Pomegranate Dressing

Updated: Sep 13, 2023

I don’t like pears. BUT, I saw a pear in my fridge and I was feeling adventurous. So here is this cool, fresh, and summery salad! The pomegranate dressing, pear, and arugula are so delicious together I don’t know how I came up with this combo. Just a PSA: the chicken is just an optional addition if you are a vegetarian or vegan! For more protein just add more hemp seeds. Let's get to the recipe!

Yields: 1

Prep time: 10 minutes

Total time: 15 minutes

This recipe is dairy free, gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan.



1. Arugula

2. 1 carrot

3. 1 cucumber

4. ½ an avocado

5. 1 celery stalk

6. ¼ pear

7. ½ cup cooked, shredded chicken breast (optional)

8. 1 TBSP hemp seeds


1. 2-3 TBSPs olive oil

2. Salt

3. Black pepper, oregano

5. ½ TBSP pomegranate dressing



1. Grab a bowl.

2. Add in 2 handfuls arugula as the base.

3. Finely dice 1 carrot, 1 cucumber, 1 celery stalk, and 1 pear. Add them to the bowl.

4. Add ½ an avocado.

5. Optional: add in ½ cup of cooked, shredded chicken breast.

6. For the dressing: in a separate bowl add in 1/2 TBSP of pomegranate dressing and a dilute with a splash of water. Pomegranate dressing has a potent taste so you need to dilate the flavor. Then, add in 2-3 TBSPs of olive oil, salt and black pepper to your liking, and ½ TSP of oregano. Mix well and pour onto the salad.

7. Enjoy!
