For the salad

  • 1 Beet
  • 1/2 bunch spinach
  • 1/2 bunch arugula
  • 6 fresh figs
  • 10 pecans omit for AIP
  • 4 Tbsp pomegranate seeds

For the vinaigrette

  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard omit for AIP
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper omit for AIP


  • Prepare the vinaigrette by mixing the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper and whisk until creamy.
  • Peel and cut the beets into very thin slices. Place them into a medium bowl and cover every layer with the vinaigrette. Use all of the vinaigrette. Marinate for at least 20 minutes, the longer the tastier.
  • In the meantime wash and dry the spinach and arugula and cut the stems.
  • Wash and cut the figs in quarters. Remove the pomegranate seeds from the fruit.
  • Once the beets are done marinating serve the spinach and arugula on plates. Add the beets, figs, pomegranate and pecans and drizzle with the rest of the vinaigrette.
  • Enjoy!
