Watermelon Salad

I never would have guessed that watermelon and red onion go together so well.  It's amazing how much the watermelon takes on the onion's flavor.  All around, this is a great summer-time dish.

Yield: 6 servings


  • 8 cups cubed seedless watermelon
  • 1/2 large red onion, sliced
  • 1 cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted
  • 2 oz. arugula
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese


  1. Combine the watermelon and red onion.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Add nuts and arugula to the watermelon.  In a separate bowl, combine the vinegar and oil.  Add to the salad and toss to coat.
  3. Serve and top with  blue  cheese.
