CSA Recipe: Watermelon, Arugula and Goat Cheese Salad

Don't mind if I abuse the amazing Watermelon we got from the CSA this week! It was yellow and so sweet and delicious. 

Watermelon, Arugula and Goat Cheese Salad
Serves 4 as an Appetizer

2 cups watermelon cut in to 1" cubes
2 oz goat cheese, crumbled
1/8 toasted pine nuts
1 tbs red onion, minced
1 small bunch arugula, stemmed and washed
1 small bunch micro-greens, washed
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper

1) Toss watermelon chunks with 1/4 tsp salt. Place in a strainer or colander to drain for 10 minutes (the salad will get very watery if you don't drain the watermelon). 

2) Make the dressing by whisking together the lemon juice, onion, rice vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Then very slowly drip in the olive oil while whisking.

3) Toss the greens and watermelon chunks with the dressing.

4) Sprinkle with pine nuts and crumbled goat cheese serve with a glass of Prosecco or Cremant!
