Watermelon, Feta, & Arugula Salad

Watermelon is a sure fire hit around my house in the summertime. Perfectly divine all on it's own, it provides the kiddos with a great source of hydration and fiber. However, there are times when I crave a slightly more "grown up" version of this delicious treat. That's why I just had to share this fabulous recipe I came across in the archives of Bon Appetit's totally yummy and super refreshing! I've also tried substituting herbed goat cheese in place of the feta for a tasty spin *smile*.

  • 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
  • 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.


  • Arrange arugula over large platter. Scatter watermelon, then feta over. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with pepper.


  1. We do this salad, only using cut up basil leaves instead, but arugula would be good too. It's always a hit!

  2. That sounds absolutely wonderful....
