Recipe: Simple and Healthy Creamy Pear Vinaigrette

Yields | 8 servings (2 tablespoons per serving)


  • 1.5 medium Bosc pears
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste


Wash pears under cold running water and scrub with vegetable brush. Cut pears in half lengthwise. Remove stems. Using a spoon or melon baller, remove core. Slice pears (leave skins on) and toss with lemon juice to avoid browning. Blend pears, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper in a food processor. Slowly add olive oil while blending. The mixture should thicken and appear creamy.
