It just isn’t summertime without a killer fruit salad on repeat. And this is one of my favorites! Plus it’s basically only three ingredients, and no-fuss salads are always welcome around here.
I can’t remember the first time I had this salad, but I’m addicted! The cold, sweet, crisp watermelon with the creamy and salty feta, and that peppery arugula, come on! And now that you have the recipe, you should give it a try.
When picking out watermelon, make sure that the theres no soft spots, the watermelon feels firm and heavy. It should have a clean scent and it should have a lighter spot on the bottom. The lighter spot is what happens from the sun not hitting it while it grows. And when picking out feta, always go for the block if possible. It tends to retain the flavor and the creamy texture better than the packaged crumbles.
There’s not measurements in this loose recipe, but make sure to drizzle the arugula with good quality extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper over the top. You can also drizzle a bit of balsamic or berry dressing if you’re feeling extra saucy.
Maybe if we start eating this year round, summer will last longer…..
