Another Summer Salad

Although summer is coming to an end, I'm not quite ready to let it go.
So I am grilling and putting fresh fruit in salad as much as possible.
This salad was divine, absolutely perfect actually.
The watermelon added a nice crunch and sweet flavor, while the onion added a necessary bite.
The dressing is perfectly tangy and the feta adds that extra flavor layer...seriously one of the best salads ever, I could have eaten an entire plate of it.
I did end up using fresh lettuce from the garden instead of arugula...I bet the arugula would add the perfect bite to this salad though.
I served it with a terryaki pork chop, which was also great.
I love this pic, but I hadn't put the feta on I didn't want you all to miss out on that in the final product picture.
Anyway I hope you are all enjoying these dog days of summer.
Soon there will be snow on the ground and I will be slow cooking stews and baking in the oven again.

Watermelon and Feta Salad
2 T white wine vinegar
2 T olive oil
2 bunches arugula, washed and dried 
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 lbs chilled seedless watermelon, rind removed, cut into small chunks
4 oz feta cheese, crumbled

In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar and oil; season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, combine arugula and onion; toss with dressing to taste.  Add watermelon and feta and gently toss.
Serve immediately.
Serves 4 as a starter salad.
