Since it’s been too hot to do anything, let alone cook – I decided to make do with what’s in the frig. I open the door and find arugula left over from the Arugula, Corn and Tomato Salad I made earlier in the week. (By the way, it made Foodbuzz’s Top Nine so if you haven’t checked it out – do so!)
Back to the frig – there’s arugula, watermelon (Hubby always buys too much!) and a pack of feta cheese. I have heard the combination of watermelon and feta is good but never tried it – it’s time for a new taste experience! I found this recipe from Ina Garten on the Food Network.
I picked fresh mint from the garden and served this beautiful, colorful salad last night. The flavors exhilarate each other and it’s just a fun salad to serve along side with a grilled entree. It would be perfect with a spicy or blacken grilled protein.
A couple of tidbits – make sure you dress it lightly, the watermelon is juicy enough and you don’t want too much liquid in the salad. And – dress it right before serving!
Other than that – Enjoy!
