Refreshing Watermelon Feta Salad

We all have our own creative way of making our self cool and refresh during Summer. I like making the most of what Summer has to offer, fresh fruits and the opportunity to drown myself with homemade cold brew tea and indulge on a variety of frozen treats and drinks (smoothie, Popsicles, ice cream). Let’s not forget salad, light refreshing salad who would turn that down? I certainly wouldn’t. Today I’m sharing with you a very refreshing light salad, it couldn’t get any refreshing that this Watermelon and Aragula Feta Salad. Watermelon and salad? Why not. This is actually my first time to try this salad. I didn’t even know about this salad until few weeks ago when I saw someone ordered this in a restaurant. It looks so beautiful, but more than the way it looks, I was intrigued by the combination of the ingredients in this salad. First of all, I’m used to eating watermelon on its own adding it on a salad it something that is not usual for me to do, in fact I haven’t done it not even once. But that I can probably imagine myself eating, but what’s intrigued me the most is the balsamic vinegar dressing on top. Watermelon & balsamic vinegar, who would even think of putting this two together? Apparently somebody did because a lot of people had been doing this when I searched in Pinterest. I had to satisfy my curiosity so I decided to make this salad and give it a try. Here’s my thought on this salad

Watermelon and Feta Salad

How does this Watermelon & Aragula Salad taste like? 

It’s refreshing and light, the first bite of the watermelon with balsamic vinegar is not that bad of a combination, but definitely something that I had to get used too but it gets ok as soon as I started eating more of it. If you don’t like the idea of balsamic vinegar and watermelon together, you can totally skip drizzling it on top of the watermelon but do not skip drizzle it to the Aragula. Aragula has a stronger bite as compared to other salad greens and the honey balsamic dressing somehow tame that bite an strong taste, plus with feta cheese it made it taste better. It’s a good salad when you are looking for something really refreshing, the watermelon really step up in providing the refreshing taste. 

Watermelon Aragula Feta Salad

What are the ingredients to make Watermelon & Aragula Feta Salad?

  • Watermelon – I recommend using seedless watermelon
  • Feta Cheese – can be substituted with goat cheese
  • Aragula – can be substituted with mix greens
  • Balsamic Vinegar 
  • Honey – to give sweetness to the dressing and to tone down the strong taste of vinegar 

How do you make watermelon& Aragula feta salad?

It cannot get any simpler than this. The most that you need to do is to cut the watermelon, how difficult is that anyway. So first thing you need to do is to cut the watermelon. Cut it into smaller pieces, cube is better. To cut it into cut, cut the four sides of the watermelon to create a cube shape watermelon. Imagine it a circle then draw a square inside a circle, the sides outside the square is what you need to remove. Once that is done, remove the skin of the watermelon and you’ll end up with a square piece of the watermelon. Now you can cut it into cubes. depending on the size of the watermelon, divide it to the size of square that you like. In my case I cut it into four horizontally then cut it into four vertically. Set aside then make the dressing by mixing the balsamic vinegar and honey. Arrange the Aragula on a plate drizzle with half the dressing. Arrange the cubed Watermelon on top, add blueberry and feta cheese then drizzle with the remaining dressing. As easy as that. 

Watermelon Salad

Ingredients:

  • 600g Watermelon
  • 2 cups Arugula
  • 1/3 cup Blueberry
  • 2 tbsp Feta Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Honey 

Note:  The dressing is not a lot, if you like plenty of dressing on your salad double of triple the ingredients. I find that it is too strong to have too much of the balsamic dressing on the watermelon.

Instructions:

  1. Cut the watermelon:  Cut the watermelon into half, then  cut small portion of the end. Slice horizontally, then cut vertically.  Watch the video to see how to cut the watermelon into bite size cube.
  2. Make the Dressing: Mix balsamic vinegar and honey.
  3. Assemble: Arrange Aragula on a plate and toss with half of the dressing. Top with sliced watermelon, feta cheese and blueberry.  Pour remaining dressing on top.
