Arugula, Watermelon, and Avocado Salad

  • 3 ounces arugula

  • ½ watermelon, chopped (about 4 cups)

  • 2 just-ripe avocados, peeled, pitted, and sliced 

  • 1 heirloom tomato, sliced

  • 1 cup fresh cherries,  pitted and chopped

  • 2 ounces feta cheese

  • ¼ ounce (or 1 tablespoon) fresh mint, finely chopped

  • Juice and zest of 2 limes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Dash habanero powder (or ⅛ teaspoon chopped habanero pepper )

This salad looks like a really pretty layered like a cake. Start with a bed of arugula. Arrange the watermelon on top, then add the avocados, the tomatoes, the cherries, the feta, and the mint.  Place the lime juice and zest, the olive oil, and the pepper in a blender (the smaller the carafe the better) and blend to emulsify. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and serve.  

Because of the vividness and contrast of the colors, you can think of this salad as a painting and connect to your inner artist to create any effect that’s calling to you. Whether you layer it vertically or horizontally or toss it into an abstract-expressionist concoction, it’ll dazzle the eyes and delight the taste buds
