Watermelon Arugula Salad

Two weeks ago, the weather was very hot. Therefore, I found this watermelon salad recipe. It was just perfect for a hot summer day! The watermelon was sweet, and the cheese was creamy. The salad was very refreshing and tasty. Next time, I am going to make it with mint leaves.

Watermelon Arugula Salad (Adapted from Ina Garten)

2 servings


–   1/8th seedless watermelon (cut into 1-inch cubes)

–   3 cups baby arugula (washed and dried with paper towels)

–   4 ounces feta cheese (cut into ½-inch cubes)


–   1/8 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

–   1/8 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

–   1/8 cup shallots (minced)

–   1 tablespoon honey

–   ¼ cup olive oil

–   salt

–   ground black pepper


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, shallots, honey, salt and pepper. Pour in the olive oil slowly, and whisk constantly until creamy.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the watermelon, arugula, cheese together. Drizzle enough vinaigrette to coat the salad lightly, and toss well. Season with salt and pepper to your taste. Serve immediately.


  1. The original recipe has mint leaves, but I am not a fan of mint. So, I opted it out. If you want, you can add ½ cup whole fresh mint leaves.
