Arugula and Watermelon Salad

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!


About Salts Kitchen

I write. I eat. And I cook. I write about what I cook and eat. I love finding new foods, being inspired to make something I've never made, and most of all I love feeding other people things that they have never tried before. I like disproving myths about food and what it means to eat well, to eat healthy, often on a budget, and for some of us- to eat with a bunch of food allergies (and still eat well!).
