Refreshing Watermelon Salad

In the latest issue of Food Network Magazine, there are some wonderful salad recipes. I tried the one in this post and it has a lot of flavors going on in your mouth! I already had the watermelon, red onion and olives and my oregano is growing nicely in the herb garden. So I picked up some arugula and feta on the way home to give this a whirl. Being a lover of fruit and greens together, I was interested in how all of these favors were going to fit together....sweet, juicy watermelon, pungent and sweet red onion, salty feta and olives and peppery arugula. All I can say is that this is an explosion for your taste buds! These all paired up and complimented each other so well. It is also colorful and happy looking. There are 50 salad ideas in this issue so I have several more that I would like to try. I will keep you all posted!

Watermelon-Feta Salad

Whisk 1 part white wine vinegar with 3 parts olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.

Toss with baby arugula, red onion slices, watermelon cubes, crumbled feta, nicoise olives and fresh oregano.

That's it! How easy and healthy and gets you done in a flash!! Pair this with a nice semolina bread, glass of crisp Sauvignon Rose wine and you have a light summer supper!!


  1. Your salad sounds and looks wonderful! I love arugula and any kind of olive.

    Perfect summer meal!

  2. One of the nicest salads I've ever heard of. Super refreshing and so many flavors going on in each bite! :-)

  3. I'm typically not a huge fan of watermelon but as I read your post my mouth was watering!! This sounds GOOD!
