Mizuna (and/or) Arugula Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
FEATURING: Mizuna, lettuce and/or arugula (optional), and apples (or daikon or kohlrabi or white turnips)
This is a quick & really easy recipe. Just adapt the recipe based on how much arugula and mizuna you have. If you can’t find mizuna greens, you can use arugula or any other lettuce mix of choice (or mustard greens).
Ingredients You'll Need
3 1/2 cups of mizuna or lettuce mix (1/2 of baby mizuna and 1/2 lettuce and/or arugula)
1 pomegranate, halved and seeds taken out (or 1/2 cup store bought seeds- you can also use frozen pomegranate seeds that you should thaw before using)
1 apple, sliced into thin wedges (you can also use 1 cup kohlrabi or 1 cup daikon, cut in 1/4 inch matchsticks
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon honey (or maple syrup)
salt and pepper, to taste
For the dressing, whisk olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, honey and salt & pepper. Set aside.
Place mizen, arugula and apple slices (or kohlrabi or daikon) in a large bowl. Cut pomegranate in half and hit the back side with a rolling pin (or other device) to release seeds. Pour in dressing and toss well. Arrange salad on serving plates.
