"An interesting mix of arugula, watermelon, and feta cheese creates one great summer salad! I like sauteeing and caramelizing the onions for a sweeter salad." — Joshua

2 (5 ounce) packages
watermelon, seeded and cubed
red onion, sliced
crumbled feta cheese
1 1/2 cups
The watermelon was a nice and sweet contrast to the bitter greens. However, I would recommend less onions or dicing them - they easily overpowered the watermelon.
I was very surprised by this recipe! I was very skeptical about the flavors and whether they would compliment each other, which they did!
I had this at a party, but she left out the onions and used a store bought balsamic glaze. It was YUMMY!!!!
This is a great summer salad. It was a surprising combination of foods for my group of friends and family that ate it, but they loved it and went back for seconds. I did follow the suggestion of caramelizing the onions and I think that added just the right touch!
I rarely give 5 star ratings, but this salad is a winner. Like others, I carmelized the onions. My family - who do not like arugula or feta - emptied the salad bowl. Will definitely make again - thank you!!
This is now one of our favorite summer recipes! I omit the red onion, as we are not onion fans. I also use slight less dressing.
This was fantastic! Unfortunately I mixed the watermelon, arugula, onion and feta earlier in the evening and then added the balsamic vinegar before serving...the arugula was wilted...but the flavors in this salad came through and it was wonderful. Next time I'll just toss it before serving and would cut down the amount of balsamic (I used only 2/3 of what the recipe called for and it was still too much).
This one is a keeper!
Fantastic salad for summer. The watermelon was perfectly sweet to compliment the salty feta. Yummy.
