Directions for: Arugula, Watermelon and Feta Salad


¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice

¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)

¼ cup minced shallots (1 large)

1 Tbsp honey

½ cup good olive oil

1 tsp kosher salt

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

6 cups baby arugula, washed and spun dry

⅛ seedless watermelon, rind removed, and cut in 1-inch cubes

12 oz good feta cheese, 1/2-inch diced

1 cup (4 oz) whole fresh mint leaves, julienned


1. Whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, shallots, honey, salt, and pepper. Slowly pour in the olive oil, whisking constantly, to form an emulsion. If not using within an hour, store the vinaigrette covered in the refrigerator.

2. Place the arugula, watermelon, feta, and mint in a large bowl. Drizzle with enough vinaigrette to coat the greens lightly and toss well. Taste for seasonings and serve immediately.
