BHG’s Watermelon Cucumber Salad

This refreshing watermelon arugula salad is perfect for hot summer days. Simply toss together watermelon, cucumber, and arugula. A sprinkle of walnuts and feta cheese finishes this fresh watermelon arugula salad. Serves 8 Total Time: 25 minutes + 1 hour chill time


4 cups chilled seedless watermelon, cut into bite size chunks
4 cups baby arugula
1 medium seedless cucumber, cut in half lengthwise then cut sliced thinly
1 cup (1 large) red onion, sliced thinly
1/2 cup fresh mint, snipped
1/2 cup feta, crumbled
1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped

3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste


In a large bowl combine watermelon, arugula, cucumber, red onion, and mint. If desired, cover and chill for up to 1 hour. For vinaigrette, in a screw-top jar combine vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper. Cover and shake well. Pour vinaigrette over watermelon mixture; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with cheese and walnuts. Yum Yum!

Note: I’m going to substitute the arugula for Boston Bibb lettuce
