Watermelon Arugula Salad

This watermelon arugula salad is perfect for the summer heat! If there was one fruit that defines summer it would be watermelon! Watermelon is so sweet, refreshing and juicy combined with the saltiness of the feta cheese and the tang from the dressing you'll want to have this all summer long!

This salad is very easy to put together, beautiful to look at and definitely a crowd pleaser! It combines watermelon, arugula, feta and walnuts - seasoned with fresh mint, lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper. The refreshing & bright combination will have you craving more! Definitely one of my favorite ways of consuming watermelon.
