I cannot get enough watermelon this season. Two Happy Children at the Farmers’ Market Downtown sells the most amazing watermelons and currently I’m hooked on the Tiger Melon, a seedless yellow-flesh melon. Continuing on my merry way on the Clean Cleanse, I have been eating a ton of this refreshing and hydrating fruit. There are so many variations on the Watermelon, Tomato, and Feta Salad and the bite of the arugula with the crisp of the watermelon in this version make for a perfect snack any time of day.
Arugula and Watermelon Salad
serving: 1 large salad bowl
2 cups baby arugula, loosely packed
2 cups seedless watermelon, cut into bite-sized pieces
5-8 basil leaves
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
hefty sprinkle of pepper
pinch of good salt (I used fleur de sel here)
In a large salad bowl, mix arugula and watermelon. Tear the basil into pieces and toss on top. Add the olive oil and vinegar and toss lightly. Add salt and pepper to taste. And that’s it. Enjoy!
