Watermelon and Arugula Salad

Watermelon and Arugula Salad

Serves 6 to 8

This refreshing salad makes a delicious first course or side dish for warm-weather meals. You can make it up to a day ahead, but add the arugula just before serving for best texture. If you'd like to save time by buying pre-cut watermelon, you'll need about 2 pounds of chunks to equal 6 cups diced.

Ingredients: 
  • 6 cups diced seedless watermelon
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup feta cheese crumbles
  • 1/2 cup toasted sunflower seeds
  • 6 tablespoons prepared balsamic dressing
  • 5 cups lightly packed baby arugula
  • Cracked black pepper to taste
