Watermelon Salad


1 fresh watermelon chopped into bite-sized cubes – If in a time crunch, use pre-cubed watermelon which can be purchased in the produce section of most grocery stores – but this is often a bit expensive so I like to cut my own

2 cups of feta cheese cubes – Most grocery stores will have feta cheese in the deli section and somtimes behind their deli counter.  If you do not use feta cheese often, buy a brick from the deli counter and only buy what you need for the salad.  If you do buy feta cheese in a package it is cheaper to by a large block and cut it yourself – but for convenience it can be purchased pre-cubed.  I like to make sure my feta comes with a brine to make it last longer in the refrigerator.

3-4 cups of fresh arugula

Vinaigrette Dressing to taste – Any vinaigrette type dressing would work here.  I would use a raspberry vinaigrette or red wine vinaigrette.  Our website provides various ideas for vinaigrette dressings and also provides the idea ratio for preparing any vinaigrette.  For a picnic, a bottled dressing may be the most portable. Remember it is easier to add more than to remove dressing.  Add bits at a time!! Link below*
