Simply Delicious, 4 Ingredient Watermelon Basil Feta Salad

Watermelon Basil Feta Salad

Watermelon is so easy to love by itself but mix it with herbs like basil or lovage, spicy greens like arugula or endive and salty cheese then magic happens. I’ve made this salad many times with arugula but I think I love the basil even more. Make this watermelon basil feta salad as a side dish or as a main meal salad.

 

 

I grow basil, arugula, lovage, parsley, lavender, Swiss chard and arugula on my deck in pots, all winter long in Mexico. Some greens and fresh herbs are available at the organic markets. I buy seeds and plant the herbs that I frequently use. I have seen herb plants at the farmers markets in the spring.

Arugula is easy to grow and difficult to find so grow your own.

Arugula

 

Market Fresh Mexican Produce Let local farmers know that you need fresh arugula and basil. Join a CSA, community supported agriculture, in your community or get together with your farmers and create one.
