Watermelon Feta and Arugula Salad

Gluten Free, Salad, Vegetarian1 Response »

Another week of above average temperatures.

Hot, Hot, and more Hot.

With the heat and humidity, I just don’t feel like hot food.

Unless it’s spicy, that’s is another issue altogether, and I always want spicy.

So let’s not turn on the stove. Okay?

In the blog world I have been seeing feta/watermelon salads.  A lot.

So I thought why not jump in?

Unlike the rage of kale chips last summer, I just got around to making those.

Why oh why did I wait so long?  They are fabulous.

So don’t wait so long, seize the moment and make this salad.

You could pair it with a some precooked shrimp from the market.

Or a few cold cuts, for me it would be prosciutto, naturally gluten free.

Some nice crusty baguette.

Chill some fruity, crisp white wine.

Dinner is ready.
