Refreshing watermelon arugula salad with almond feta, pistachios, hemp seeds and balsamic. It’s the perfect summer salad. Serve as a side or pair a protein of your choice. Grilled salmon or shrimp are delicious!
Plate the arugula and top with watermelon. Crumble on the almond feta. Add the pistachios and hemp seeds. Drizzle with the balsamic and finish with fresh cracked black pepper and flakey sea salt.
This salad keeps best if the watermelon is stored separately.
I use raw unsalted pistachios but roasted pistachios are delicious.. You can toast the pistachios in a skillet over medium until they start to brown. Shake and stir continuously so they don’t burn. This takes about 5-10 minutes.
