One way to stay cool and hydrated during the summer months is eating a refreshing watermelon, feta cheese, and arugula salad. This sweet and savory food combination blends very nicely together. I was surprised how a simple and nutritious salad dish can be so delish!
Here's a fun fruit fact:
Watermelons are native to Africa and were an important souce of liquid with a 92% high water content. This juicy fruit is packed with nutrients for healthy eyes, glowing skin, and a robust immune system.
- 3 cups *seedless watermelon, cubed
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 7 oz arugula, wash and pat dry
- 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
Place the ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
The Lifestyle Dietitian Notes
*I try to buy fruits and vegetables in season whenever I can. Watermelons are now available from May through September.
