Watermelon & Feta Salad with Arugula

There’s nothing better than a cool watermelon on a warm summer day. This salad takes it to another level with its vibrant colors and refreshing flavors.

Baby arugula adds a peppery bite to the sweet watermelon and salty feta. Serve as a side dish to a summer barbecue or bring as a welcomed potluck salad.

  • 6 cups Watermelon, cut in circles with a melon baller or just even chunks
  • 2 cups Arugula, baby leaves are the most tender
  • ½ sm Red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup Mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 cup Feta cheese, crumbled
  • ½ sm Lemon, juiced
  • 2 tsp Sea salt flakes

Add watermelon to a large bowl and set aside and let sit about 15 minutes.

Drain juice from watermelon (don’t throw it away, just drink it), add remaining ingredients and toss gently. Save a bit of feta and mint to garnish before serving.

3 Serve chilled and don’t let it sit too long before serving. Best eaten the same day, but can be refrigerated for a few days.
