Watermelon Salad with Arugula, Goat Cheese, and Candied Walnuts
AUTHOR: Danielle Walker – AgainstAllGrain.com
6 pieces of watermelon, cut to 1 inch thickness
2 cups baby arugula
2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
pinch of salt and pepper
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese. (I substitute with feta cheese).
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup Spiced Candied Walnuts, roughly chopped (can substitute pecans)
Using a large biscuit cutter, or just great circle cutting knife skills!, Cut the watermelon slices into large circles. Use a knife to trim off any parts that make the circle uneven so it sits flat on a plate. For the 4th I use a star cookie cutter.
n a medium bowl, toss the arugula with the mint, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Arrange the watermelon circles on a plate, then top each with a small handful of the arugula mixture (roughly 1/3 cup each).
Sprinkle each salad with goat cheese and the chopped walnuts, then drizzle the balsamic vinegar over the tops. Enjoy!
