Total: 15 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 5ozarugulapacked
  • 2cupswatermelon seedless, cubed
  • cupfeta cheesecrumbled
  • cupKalamata oliveshalved and pitted
  • ¼cupextra virgin olive oil
  • 1pcsmall shallotchopped (about 2 tbsp)
  • 2tbspsherry vinegar or red wine vinegar

Instructions

  1. In a medium serving bowl, combine the arugula, cubed watermelon, feta, and olives.

  2. In a small liquid measuring cup or bowl, combine all of the vinaigrette ingredients and whisk until blended.

  3. Taste and add more salt and pepper if necessary, keeping in mind that the salad contains some salty ingredients.

  4. Wait until you’re ready to serve to dress the salad since the arugula will start wilting once it comes into contact with the vinaigrette.

  5. Whisk the vinaigrette one more time, then drizzle about half of the vinaigrette over the salad. Gently toss to combine.

  6. Add more vinaigrette if necessary to lightly coat the arugula
