This healthy salad uses fresh seasonal ingredients, tastes delicious and is so easy to make. This is a family favorite recipe for the summer that is sure to please!


  • 4 cups baby arugula
  • 12 Tbsp. olive oil
  • a few pinches of sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp. mint leaves, minced
  • 3 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • balsamic glaze, for drizzling over the salad
  • 1/4 cup roasted pistachios (optional)
  • 1/4 cup feta chees crumbles (optional)


  1. Spread the arugula leaves out over a large serving platter.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and a pinch or two of sea salt. Massage the oil and salt into the arugula leaves gently with your hands.
  3. Mince the mint leaves and add them to the top of the arugula.
  4. Cut the watermelon into cubes and place it on top of the arugula, along with the blueberries.
  5. Finish by drizzling some balsamic glaze over the salad and topping it off with roasted pistachios and feta cheese, if using.


  • Feta cheese and pistachios (or sunflower seeds) are optional ingredients in this recipe. Consider serving them tableside, so that each person can decide whether or not they’d like to add them to the salad.
  • Used mixed greens in place of arugula, if you don’t like the more peppery flavor of arugula.
