Watermelon Arugula and Feta Salad

I love the flavor combination in this simple watermelon feta and balsamic salad. It is wonderfully sweet, salty, peppery, fresh and summery. Perfect to serve with anything you’re grilling.

The first time tried watermelon in a salad with Feta, I was in a very trendy neighborhood eatery in Brooklyn and I loved it. All the ingredients compliment each so well and it’s so pretty to look at too. I’ve brought it to parties and everyone loved it, just double or triple the recipe and make the dressing on the side. The balsamic vinaigrette compliments the flavors in the salad perfectly, it’s fresh, flavorful and scrumptious!

Variations:

Substitute the arugula for Romaine, butter lettuce, watercress or mixed greens and we love it just the same!
