Arugula, Watermelon and Feta Salad
For the vinaigrette dressing:
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
For the Salad:
6 cups baby arugula, washed and spun dry(make sure you dry it good)
1/4th of a seedless watermelon, rind removed, and cut in 2-inch cubes
12 ounces good feta cheese, 1/2-inch diced
1 cup (4 ounces) whole fresh mint leaves, julienned
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.
Wait to assemble until right before serving. Place the arugula, watermelon, feta, and mint in a large bowl. Drizzle with 2/3rd vinaigrette to coat the greens lightly and toss well. Leave the rest on the side. Taste for seasonings and serve immediately.
