Arugula, Watermelon and Feta Salad

Arugula, Watermelon and Feta Salad

Ingredients

For the vinaigrette:
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
  • ¼ cup minced shallots (1 large)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ cup good olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
For the salad:
  • 3 cups (4 ounces) baby arugula, washed and spun dry
  • 1/8th seedless watermelon, rind removed, and cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 12 ounces good Feta cheese, ½-inch diced
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) whole fresh mint leaves, julienned

Recipe

Whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper. Slowly pour in the olive oil, whisking constantly, to form an emulsion. If not using within an hour, store the vinaigrette covered in the refrigerator.

Place the arugula, watermelon, feta and mint in a large bowl. Drizzle with enough vinaigrette to coat the greens lightly and toss well. Taste for seasonings and serve immediately.
