Delicious salad. It was my first time with my new air fryer, and I think the beets could have been better – they were a little uneven in thickness, because I was hand cutting them. I see a mandoline in my future!
Also I had a very large pear that was super-sweet. I could have used a half, or cut down a little on the maple syrup in the dressing. But I will continue working on this one – it’s a keeper!
This was a very yummy salad! Thanks so much.
I doubled the dressing and added avocado that previous posters recommended. This salad is filling, refreshing and delish! I am not a lover or even a liker of beets, but using the dressing and air frying them made them tolerable. My husband loved them!! So we have a winner, a beet meal that we can both enjoy! That’s a first!
So delicious! Added a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds. Avocado would be tasty with this, too.
Amazing!! Filling, tasty and flavor combinations that are superb! Good job FOK!
You can easily bake them in the oven 425 app 15-20 min
Amazing recipe! I added a little avocado and pomegranate seeds just becuz I had them to use up. Was a great addition my farro turned out kinda soggy like oatmeal but did add some into my salad and was delicious will post a pic on Instagram
To make this dressing one has to do lot of shopping.
I had all of these things in the house already…they’re pretty basic things!
I don’t eat gluten. Would substituting quinoa work?
It should. I plan to use oat groats with it however- I find it a more subtle replacement for things like wheat, farro, barley etc. just make sure it’s certified gluten free if you’re celiac or intolerant (I get mine off Amazon)
I love this salad; so easy and filling. It was a hit at a recent pot-luck, where most guests were not WFPB.
Amazing. I used lemon instead of orange juice. I never write reviews lol but this was refreshing and delicious !
What is I don’t want to buy another piece of equipment like an air fryer?
I’m with you, Geraldine. I have the slow cooker, the Vitamix, pots and pans, great roasting pans, and I have no intention to buy an air fryer. Eventually end up in the landfill. I’ll just skip the recipes if we need an air fryer. Oh, did I mention food processor too? Any suggestions on making w/o an air fryer?
I would say just cook the beats in the oven.
perfect summer day lunch salad.
the flavors all compliment each other.
Your definitely missing out by not having an air fryer, it’s actually the best invention since the microwave..
Air-Fry 20 min. but at what temperature?
Hi Marina. Air-fry at 350°F.
