Great Summer Side Dish: Watermelon, Feta, and Arugula Salad with Balsamic Glaze
It’s another rainy summer day but that doesn’t mean we can’t dine on quintessential summer foods like WATERMELON! To me, there are few foods that encapsulate summer better than a juicy slice of watermelon.
Here is a great salad with watermelon, feta, and baby arugula. Simply dress it with a little balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze (reduced balsamic vinegar). If you are using a well-aged balsamic, I don’t think there is any need to reduce it but if you are using a basic balsamic I would suggest reducing it.
I served this salad as a side last weekend when we cooked ribs for Tim’s family. YUM!
- 1 5-ounce package baby arugula
- 8 cups 3/4-inch cubes seedless watermelon
- 1 7-ounce package feta cheese, crumbled
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar glaze
Arrange arugula over large platter. Scatter watermelon, then feta over. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with pepper.
Ingredient tip: Balsamic vinegar glaze can be found in the vinegar section at many supermarkets. If unavailable, boil 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan until reduced to 3 tablespoons, 6 to 7 minutes.
