Last week, Mantamy served a delicious Watermelon/Cucumber salad that I’ve been dreaming about ever since. Today as I was walking through Publix, I noticed they were getting ready to prepare something similar, so I decided to give it a try.
First, quarter 2 pounds of watermelon, and set aside. I went seedless cause I am fancy.
Next, whisk together 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt, and 2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar. (Just so you know, I used regular balsamic vinegar and sea salt and it was just fine. My fanciness has its limits.)
Chop 1 cup of red onion.
Cut 8 oz. of grape tomatoes in half, then mix with 3 cups of arugula and the onions. Add vinaigrette and toss to coat.
Add in watermelon and 4 oz. of crumbled feta cheese. That’s it!
Moron Test Kitchen – A++! Seriously, this may be the best thing I’ve ever made. The arugula is bitter by itself, but as soon as you put all of the ingredients together, it works. JD loved it, too. We had it for dinner, along with grilled portobello mushrooms topped with asparagus and corn on the cob.
By the way, I’ve lost 6 pounds in the last week and a half and JD has lost 11. Clean. Eating. Works. 412 pounds to go!
