Recipe: Arugula Salad with Plums and Red Cabbage

This is another recipe from the Outstanding in the Field cookbook, and is a quick, colorful, and seriously tasty salad. It originally calls for purslane, but unless you grow that particular green yourself it can be VERY difficult to find. (on that note, if anyone in greater Orange County is growing it or has some, I'm willing to barter). I subbed that delicate sounding purslane for the earthy bitter arugula. Yum

  • For Salad: Slice plums and dice red cabbage, mix with arugula
  • For dressing: Mince 2 cloves garlic, juice 3 lemons, add an equal amount of olive oil. Add 5 tbs of balsamic (or some other sweet vinegar - I used a orange muscat vinegar). Shake until combined
  • Toss and serve :)
