Watermelon Caprese Arugula Salad

by | Salads | 2 comments

I am a big fan of a traditional Caprese salad. My Watermelon Caprese Arugula Salad has become a family favorite.  It is another recipe that tastes like summer on your fork! Gingham Strapless Dress / Navy Espadrilles / Laurel Necklace / Hazen Lapis Bamboo Beach Bangles / Alicia Earrings in Gold / Bamboo Platter /

Filled with fresh watermelon, mozzarella and garden grown basil, this simple salad has been a staple for us this summer.  Topped with a ready-made balsamic reduction or even a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, honey and good olive oil this salad has the perfect flavors to accompany your favorite meat from the grill.

By far my favorite salad green is fresh arugula. I love the texture and the peppery zip. Combined with the sweets do you see perfection of a summer watermelon and creamy mozzarella it is perfection on your plate.

Watermelon Caprese Arugula Salad
 
Ingredients
  • 6 cups arugula
  • 1 cup diced watermelon
  • 10-12 leaves of fresh basil
  • 1 container mozzarella bocconcini (little bite size balls)
  • Balsamic Glaze (I get mine at Trader Joe's)
Instructions
  1. Layer everything on a plate and drizzle with Balsamic Glaze
  2. Serve Immediately.

If you love watermelon like we do, you’ll want to check out this Watermelon Gazpacho.  It is one of my most popular recipes!  I have lots of other fresh summer recipes in my Food & Entertaining section on the menu bar above.  When you subscribe to the newsletter you also get the password to download my eBooks including Taste of Summer and Fresh Sips, both filled with summer recipes you’ll love.
