This recipe is perfect for lunch or served with dinner and is appropriate for low-calorie, low-cholesterol, and lacto-vegetarian diet regimens. Shave off a little of the olive oil and this recipe would qualify as a low-fat recipe too.

  • 1 tbsp red-wine vinegar

  • 0.5 tsp salt

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

  • 3 cups cubed (0.5-in) seeded watermelon

  • 6 cups baby arugula

  • 0.3 cup crumbled feta cheese

  • Coarsely ground black pepper to taste


Whisk together lemon juice, vinegar, and salt in a large bowl.

Add oil in a slow stream, whisking until ingredients are suspended.

Add watermelon and arugula, and toss to coat. Sprinkle with cheese and pepper and serve immediately.
