Watermelon + Arugula Salad

Stay cool and refreshed by making this cold Watermelon + Arugula Salad. We love the juicy and fresh watermelon right now - it quenches our thirst and provides an abundance of vitamins and minerals, including a super high amount of lycopene and potassium (more than a banana!) which is very important to regulating fluids in the body.

This easy summer salad is perfect to make for dining al fresco on a warm evening . Watermelon and mint add plenty of refreshing flavor, while the arugula, feta and lime create a wonderful savory balance.


For the dressing

  • 4 Tbls olive oil

  • 6 Tbls lime juice

  • 1/2 garlic clove, minced

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

For the salad

  • 5 cups watermelon, cubed

  • 1 cup diced english cucumber

  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese (we love Violife for a plant-based option)

  • 1 avocado, cubed

  • 1/3 cup mint, torn

  • Sea salt to taste

  • 2 big handfuls of arugula


1. Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, garlic and salt.

2. Arrange the watermelon, cucumbers, and arugula on a large plate or platter. Drizzle with half the dressing - just enough to lightly coat the greens. Top with the feta, avocado, mint then drizzle more dressing. Season to taste and serve.
