~~~Arugula, Watermelon and Feta salad!!!!~~~

 Good Monday morning everyone!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had a BUSY weekend. Went to a Blue Rocks baseball game on Fri. night with our daughter and SIL, went to our dinner group dinner on Sat. night and then to another dinner on Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I FEEL FAT:):) But, I did want to share this recipe with you. This is the salad we had at the dinner I hosted 2 weeks ago. It was so yummy  could have eaten the whole bowl myself:)
 The dressing is DELICIOUS!! I hope you will try this salad, it is delish!
Here is the recipe for you:


For the vinaigrette:

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


Whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, shallots, 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.
