Soul Food/A Weekly Locavore Post

I created this recipe to be the go-to salad for those hot days when you

want something simple, succulent, and satisfying.

With only five ingredients, it's easy peasy to throw together for a Labor Day feast for yourself or family and friends. Less IS more! Fewer ingredients = less work for your digestive system.

The star of the salad, watermelon, is still in season, making it a great

hot-weather staple. Made up of 92% water, watermelon is a natural diuretic that hydrates and cleanses the body. The co-star, arugula, is also hydrating and low calorie.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

  • Cheese ~ Feta OR a nut-based vegan cheese

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
