RECIPE: Arugula, Watermelon & Feta Salad
This has become our favorite salad. The citrus vinaigrette is so good! I don't use quite as much salt.
Arugula, Watermelon & Feta Salad
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup minced shallots
1 T honey
1/2 cup light olive il
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, shallots, honey, salt and pepper. Slowly pour in oil, whisking constantly to form an emulsion. If not using within an hour, store in refrigerator, covered.
6 cups arugula
1/8 seedless watermelon, rind removed, cut in 1" cubes
12 oz good feta in 1/2" dice
1 cup (4 oz) whole fresh mint leaves, julienned
Place arugula,watermelon, feta and mint in a large bowl. Drizzle with enough vinaigrette to coat the greens lightly and toss well. Taste for seasonings and serve immediately.
