Arugula, Watermelon and Feta salad


Arugula, watermelon and feta is a classic salad combination. The peppery arugula blends very well with the sweet watermelon and the salty feta. I had this salad in my mind for a long time but was not getting my hands on a bunch of Arugula. Recently a friend, who grows it in her house brought me some fresh leaves from her garden and I took no time in deciding where am I going to use it. The balsamic vinaigrette that I posted the other day was the perfect dressing for the salad. Here is how to assemble the salad.


All you need is

Arugula \ Rocket leaves - 3-4 cups
Watermelon - 1 kg watermelon ( peeled, de seeded and cut into small pieces )
Feta cheese - 100 g
Balsamic vinaigrette - 3-4 tbsp ( Recipe is here )


Method of preparation

Wash the arugula leaves and wrap them in a cotton cloth for 5 minutes to get rid of excess water on the leaves.
Add the leaves in the salad bowl.
Top with watermelon pieces.
Top the salad with crumbled feta cheese.
Drizzle the balsamic vinaigrette on top.
Serve immediately.
