a summer salad: watermelon arugula salad with feta


Here's another summer favorite of mine. And, now that we have what seems to be fields of arugula, I will be eating this salad regularly. It's so light, simple, and flavorful--and that makes it hard to pass up.

Watermelon Arugula Salad, with Feta

3 cups of sliced, or cubed, seedless watermelon
4 handfuls of arugula
1/2 cup of feta, crumbled
Olive Oil
Pinch of Salt and Pepper (optional)

In a bowl, combine arugula and watermelon. Drizzle with olive oil--not much--and toss. Sprinkle with pepper and salt, but taste the watermelon and arugula first. Sometimes, the arugula will be peppery enough on its own. And, in the same vain, sometimes the watermelon will be flavorful enough on its own as well. But, salt can bring the flavor out really well. Finish with crumbles of feta on top and enjoy!
