Watermelon Salad

Watermelon SaladHope you're having a wonderful Independence Day--we're doing our picnicking tomorrow so there's still time for me to cook.

Salads are always the highlight of our parties and this one is a salad I'd definitely recommend. Easy, colorful, summery and healthy.

1/3 balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
4 cups seeded, cubed watermelon
5 cups arugula leaves (or mixed greens if you prefer)
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup crumbled feta

In a small saucepan mix balsamic vinegar and honey, simmering until reduced to a syrup (about 5-7 minutes).

Let it cool. Toss the watermelon and arugula leaves together and drizzle vinegar reduction over the top along with the olive oil. Top with the feta and serve right away.

Yum! Hubs doesn't eat watermelon, but La Petite and I would make and eat and adore this.

I was going to make a smart-alecky comment about how if the salads are the HIGHLIGHT of your parties then maybe you needed different friends, but that's just because I'm in a silly mood. Actually, this salad looks delish! And I never thought of putting watermelon in a salad before! So pretty!
