Vibrant, juicy, sweet and savory watermelon and arugula salad with a simple vinaigrette.
When watermelon is in season, it’s the best thing since sliced bread!
It’s more flavorful, juicy, and more vibrant!
Watermelon helps keep us hydrated as it has high water content.
This pink fruit is also packed with vitamin C, vitamin A and other healthy plant compounds.
The perfect pairing with any summer BBQ is a bright and fresh watermelon salad!
I’m adding arugula for that peppery bite, plus I always love adding some greens.
Arugula is a nutrient-dense food that is high in fiber, calcium, potassium, folate and vitamins.
Feta cheese goes really well with watermelon so that’s a no brainer.
I highly recommend getting the block in brine, it’s a thousand times better than the pre-crumbled stuff, trust me!
This greek cheese is also very nutritious and a great source of calcium as it is made with the milk of either sheep or goats that are raised on local grass.
Red onion for that hint of onion and pumpkin seeds for a bit of crunch and nutritional value.
With standout flavors like these a very simple 2-ingredient dressing is all you need.
Make sure you have a high quality balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.
