Hey yall I am here today with something a little different and that I haven’t done in a while. A nice little recipe for you all. As summer is approaching watermelon is always the best fruit for me to have because its just so fresh and has a wonderful taste and it just so good when its nice and cold. My kids love watermelon and I wanted a way to enhance this into a great side dish to a nice steak or something light for lunch so the adults can have in on the fun too.
I decided to use arugula because it taste so crisp and fresh, with a balsamic vinaigrette and all the extras, it was so good! As I said above this would be a perfect side dish to some nice marinated steaks or some veggie kabobs. IT is also really great all on its own. I might see what other recipes I can come up with the fruit of summer.
Adding all the ingredients for the vinaigrette into a mason jar, closed it and shook it all up together to make it easier for storage. I didn’t use all the dressing I made so I used it for a steak marinade and still had some left over for another salad. This summer I will be adding lots more recipes to the blog here and becoming more consistent. Cooking and making meals for myself and my family is what I love to do, mostly. Sometimes it is good to get a break, balance. Documenting more and sharing more here is my goal moving forward. Below I have shared the recipe for you all. I hope you make this salad and you thoroughly enjoy it. If you love it let me know and share it.
