Watermelon Arugula Mint Salad with Feta Cheese

This watermelon arugula salad is your new go-to no-cook dish for summer.

There are few things more synonymous with summer than the beloved watermelon. I am sure each of us can remember days at the beach or huddled around a campfire, watermelon slice in hand.

Luckily, this tasty treat is also extremely healthy, being a great source of vitamins C and A. Watermelon is also exceptionally hydrating, making it the ultimate snack for those hot summer days.

In the last few years, much like cauliflower, watermelon has undergone a tremendous glow up in the recipe world. Where we used to resort to simply munching on slices, a whole world of watermelon recipes has unfolded. From salads to sorbets, to agua fresca and even margaritas, watermelon is taking center stage as the go to snack and drink in the foodie nutrition world.
