Watermelon Season

During the summer I am usually gone the entire time in Bolivia doing research for my graduate work. This summer I am only going down for a short season, which means, I get to feast on one of my favorite all time foods- Watermelon. For me there is nothing quite like it. They are so flavorful, yet simple, and add a refreshing addition to any meal, or as a dessert. Inspired by my favorite magazine, Bon Appetit (July 2011 addition) I created a perfect summer salad.

Watermelon and Arugula Salad
Ingredients: (Not exact, but like any salad it depends on how many your making it for)
Mint (finely chopped)

Olive oil
Trader Joe's Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar (or any light citrusy vinegar)
Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste

Just mix all of the ingredients and you will have a salad to delight (and surprise) your taste buds.
