Sweet watermelon, juicy cucumber and salty feta cheese are the perfect flavor combination nestled on top of tangy arugula.
Summer is in full swing and I am loving all that my farmer’s market has to offer. Watermelon is my weakness. I just can’t eat enough.
While I love it plain right off the rind, I love experimenting with different ways to eat it.
My arugula salad with watermelon and feta is a simple creation that can be ready in under 15 minutes.
My neighbors are Greek and always have the best feta cheese in their fridge. Packed in water, this salty cheese is a must in this salad.
If you are afraid to taste watermelon and feta together -don’t be! The flavor is amazing.
For this salad, I spiralized the cucumber instead of chopping it. Now that’s a pretty salad!
While you can use any kind of greens, spicy tender arugula leaves contradict the sweet flavor of the watermelon and syrupy taste of the balsamic glaze.
Balsamic glaze you say?
Yes. That is all you need to dress this salad. The watermelon and cucumber provide enough juice that no oil is necessary.
You can find balsamic glaze in the same spot as vinegar at your local grocery store.
Love the salty and sweet flavors in this salad?
