Packed with antioxidants from both the watermelon and the arugula, this is a super nutritious salad but low in calories! Hydrating and delicious as well!
6 cups diced seedless watermelon
½ cup red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
½ cup roasted sunflower seeds (no salt added)
5-6 cups baby arugula, lightly packed
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
2T. balsamic vinegar (or could use fresh lemon juice)
1t. agave nectar or raw honey
Fresh ground pepper to taste
Few mint/or basil leaves, chopped (optional)
Toss all of the ingredients into a large bowl except for pepper, oil, vinegar, and agave nectar. Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar and agave. Drizzle over the salad (start with a 3-4 T. b/c you may not need all of it).
Garnish with a small sprinkle of chopped mint and freshly ground pepper, if desired.
A refreshing salad for a hot summer night!
