I love the fresh flavors in this watermelon feta salad recipe and how easily it comes together. Made with mint, and a homemade orange dressing.
Prep Time:10 minutes
Total Time:10 minutes
Yield:6 servings 1x
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 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 cups baby arugula, washed and spun dry
3 cups seedless watermelon, cut in 1-inch cubes
8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup whole fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
Whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, shallots, honey, and salt. Slowly pour in the olive oil, whisking constantly, to form an emulsion. If not using within an hour, transfer the vinaigrette to an airtight container or lidded jar and refrigerate.
Place the arugula, watermelon, feta, and mint in a large bowl.
Drizzle with enough vinaigrette to coat the greens lightly and toss well.
