Arugula and Mustard Green Salad with Watermelon Dressing Recipe

Servings: 1

Prep: 15 minutes

Total: 12 hours


for the watermelon dressing:

2 cups white vinegar

111 grams granulated sugar

1 green garlic, roughly chopped

400 grams diced watermelon

for serving:

1 1/2 cups arugula

1 1/2 cups mustard greens

4 plums, thinly sliced (seed removed)

kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

edible flowers, to garnish


1. Make the watermelon dressing: In a small saucepan, heat the vinegar, sugar, and green garlic over high. Cook, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes.

2. Place the watermelon in a large bowl and pour the vinegar and garlic liquid over the top. Purée, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

3. To serve: In a large bowl, toss the arugula, mustard greens, and plums together with some of the watermelon dressing, salt, and pepper. Gently massage the plums to release some of their juices (this helps offset some of the sweetness of the dressing). Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with edible flowers.
