Arugula and Watermelon Salad
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3
This salad is the only way I know to get my teen to happily eat arugula! Very easy, especially if you start with bagged greens and a seedless watermelon.
For the salad:
  • 6 cups arugula or wild arugula, washed
  • 1-2 cups watermelon cubes from a seedless watermelon, seeds removed
  • handful pine nuts
  • a few very thinly sliced half-rings of red onion for garnish (optional)
For the dressing:
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp. of a fruit vinegar such as raspberry vinegar, or, lacking that, balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Dress the arugula with the raspberry or other vinegar, then the olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Serve salad onto plates.
  3. Arrange watermelon cubes onto each salad.
  4. Add red onion with a light hand if using. The salad already has plenty of sharpness from the arugula, the onion is mainly to make the salad look prettier.
  5. Sprinkle with pine nuts.
