FAQ’s for this Recipe

Can I substitute the greens?

Yes, you can use romaine, spinach, or butter lettuce if you prefer

What does Arugula Taste Like?

The Mediterranean plant has a distinctive peppery flavor, and the thin stalks resemble dandelion greens.

Can you make this salad ahead of time?

Yes, you can make this salad up to 24 hours in advance. I would add the watermelon at the last minute because of the water content. Do not add dressing. Place in a Tupperware bowl or cover a glass bowl.
