This watermelon feta salad is a delicious summer salad that is full of fresh flavors.
I absolutely love all of the flavors of summer! And watermelon is a big part of that, especially here in Alabama.
It is not uncommon here to see produce stands set up on the side of the road with delicious, fresh produce. And it seems like almost all of them have watermelons this time of year.
I like to keep watermelon chunks in the fridge all summer long for those moments where I just want something cold and sweet. (<- which is like every day, basically)
But sometimes I want to dress up my watermelon a bit more. Enter this watermelon feta salad.
The combination of the watermelon, feta cheese, basil, arugula and my homemade balsamic vinaigrette packs a flavorful punch, and it tastes like a little plate of summer freshness. YUM.
I am writing the recipe for one single serving, but it would be very easy to bulk this up for a crowd. I would not suggest making it ahead of time, because the watermelon will give off a lot of juice. Making it ahead may turn into a soggy mess. So I would suggest assembling it just prior to eating.
