Summertime Watermelon Salad

Author: Susan Gauthier

This refreshing salad takes advantage of the fresh, summertime flavor of an all time favorite of mine – Watermelon! While the ingredients might not seem to make sense, I found this salad to be an explosion of sweet, fresh, salty and savory all in the same bite! I love Arugula with this salad, but have substituted it with Spring Mix. It’s still delicious, but you miss out a bit on that peppery taste of the Arugula. Serve this with steaks, chicken, or seafood on the grill for a real summertime treat!

Watermelon Arugula Salad

Ingredients

  • 5-7 oz container of Arugula (Spring Mix or other bitter greens can be used)
  • 3 cups of seedless watermelon, cut in bite sized pieces and chilled
  • ½ cup of plain, crumbled feta cheese (I have also used the basil/sun-dried tomato version)
  • ¼ of a small red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons of Basalmic Vinegar
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • Kosher or Sea Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Wash and dry the Arugula (or other salad greens if not using Arugula)
  2. Mix the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper together in a large bowl
  3. Add the Watermelon, feta, onion and cherry tomatoes and toss well with the dressing.
  4. Lastly, add the Arugula and toss lightly.

This will serve 4 as a side dish or 2 as a main course. Enjoy!
