Watermelon Salad

I’m loving ever last thing in this salad, and did you know watermelon and feta were 100% most definitely made to go together? Because there’s no doubt they are the perfect pairing.

Sweet summer watermelon paired salty tangy feta is such a dreamy combo, especially made for salads like so. Then add peppery baby arugula, cool crisp cucumbers, toasty crunchy walnuts, a few red onion slices for flair, and fresh mint for another layer of well rounded flavor, then finish it off with a bright citrusy honey-lemon dressing and ooooh la la pass me another plate please!

Ingredients

Salad

  • 4 cups (20 oz) chilled seedless watermelon diced into small chunks
  • 4 cups baby arugula
  • 1/2 english cucumber , halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 1/3 cup quartered and thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves , chopped
  • 4 oz feta cheese , crumbled
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts , toasted

Lemon Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. For the dressing:
  2. In a jar combine olive oil, lemon juice, honey, mustard and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover with lid and shake to combine. Chill until ready to use.
  3. To assemble salad:
  4. In a salad bowl layer together salad ingredients (I actually like to set aside some of the feta and walnuts to sprinkle over the top, they tend to make their way to the bottom of the bowl somehow). Shake dressing again then pour over top. Very gently toss to coat. Serve immediately.
