Grape and Watercress Salad with Caraway and Granola

Grape and Watercress Salad with Caraway and Granola


  • 1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds, toasted, ground
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • 3 tablespoons steel-cut oats
  • 8 cups watercress, arugula, or upland cress, tough stems removed
  • 1 pound large red grapes, halved, seeded if needed

Recipe Preparation

  • Whisk yogurt, buttermilk, and caraway seeds in a small bowl to form a thick dressing; season with salt and pepper. DO AHEAD: Dressing can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.

  • Preheat oven to 300°. Stir sugar and 1/4 cup water in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high until mixture is simmering and sugar is dissolved, about 30 seconds. (Alternatively, combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.) Stir in almonds, oats, and pine nuts. Let stand for 5 minutes (it's okay if not all liquid is absorbed). Spread out mixture on a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Bake mixture, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and crunchy, about 35 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Break granola into clusters. DO AHEAD: Granola can be made 1 day ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.

  • Spread 2 Tbsp. dressing in center of each plate. Scatter watercress and grapes around dressing; drizzle salad with oil and season with salt and pepper. Top with granola.
