A fresh garden mix of arugula, baby lettuce red onion thin slices, coated in Pomegranate Citrus Champagne vinaigrette dressing, with overnight Pink Moscato soaked watermelon cubes, roasted pumping seeds and bites of whole grain toast with garlic butter and goat cheese that adds some crunchiness to the salad, sprinkled with Parmesan cheese flakes. —Semadar Gordel
What You'll Need
For the Salad:
baby lettuce mix
red onion cut into half , thin sliced
watermelon cut into 1/2" cubes, soaked in pink moscato (I used "Barefoot") for at least 3 hours, refrigerated
toasted pumpkin seeds
whole grain bread
soft goat cheese
Parmesan cheese flakes
For the Pomegranate Citrus Champagne vinaigrette dressing:
orange muscat champagne vinegar (I used "traders Joe")
extra virgin olive oil (good quality)
ground black pepper
add all the ingredients into a jar with a lead. shake well till combined.
toast the bread just for a 1-1.5min, take the garlic clove and rub it into the toasted bead. spread butter and goat cheese between each couple of bread slices, and with a 1" round cookie cutter cut small round bites from each sandwich. preheat a pan, add few drops of olive oil or butter, and toast the goat cheese bites until it gets crispy.
combine the dish: just before serving the salad, pour the dressing over the salad and gently mix. put in a serving plate, add 4-5 crunchy goat cheese toast to each serving plate, sprinkle toasted pumpkin seeds on top, sprinkle Parmesan cheese flakes and cilantro leaves. Bon apetit!
If you want to prepare in advance, keep the salad green mix separately from the watermelon cubes, refrigerated. mix the dressing ingredients in a jar, combine just before serving otherwise the vegetables will get soggy and will loose their freshness.
