Arugula, Watermelon and Parmesan Salad

You have to make this refreshing summer salad! We paired this salad with our turkey burgers and the entire meal was delightful.
Adapted from Ina Garten
Seedless watermelon, diced
1/3 cup good olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Parmesan cheese
Place the arugula and watermelon in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. 
***Pour enough salad dressing on the arugula to moisten and toss well.
With a very sharp knife or a vegetable peeler, shave the parmesan into ribbons and spread on top of the arugula and watermelon. 
Sprinkle with salt and serve.
***For two people, divide a handful of arugula and watermelon between two plates. Then, add a spoonful of dressing to each salad and top with parmesan. Making your salad this way will ensure you do not have soggy leftovers and you can make a fresh salad the next day with the leftover dressing. Pin It
