It’s another rainy summer day but that doesn’t mean we can’t dine on quintessential summer foods like WATERMELON! To me, there are few foods that encapsulate summer better than a juicy slice of watermelon.
Here is a great salad with watermelon, feta, and baby arugula. Simply dress it with a little balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze (reduced balsamic vinegar). If you are using a well-aged balsamic, I don’t think there is any need to reduce it but if you are using a basic balsamic I would suggest reducing it.
I served this salad as a side last weekend when we cooked ribs for Tim’s family. YUM!
- 1 5-ounce package baby arugula
- 8 cups 3/4-inch cubes seedless watermelon
- 1 7-ounce package feta cheese, crumbled
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar glaze
Arrange arugula over large platter. Scatter watermelon, then feta over. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with pepper.
Ingredient tip: Balsamic vinegar glaze can be found in the vinegar section at many supermarkets. If unavailable, boil 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan until reduced to 3 tablespoons, 6 to 7 minutes.
