Arugula, Watermelon Salad

Before writing the recipe I would like to Thank Ina for this tasty Salad.

Let me explain about Ina before I proceed further. As every one know she is Food Network culinary super star.She is such a adorable person. wow!!!!. I just love her recipes which are very simple and easy to make.I have not missed her "Barefoot Contessa" from last 2 months and I don't want to. So lets start with vinaigrette.

You need to Have

For the vinaigrette:

1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
1/4 cup minced shallots (1 large)
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup good olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

6 cups baby arugula, washed and spun dry
1/8th seedless watermelon, rind removed, and cut in 1-inch cubes

Whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, shallots, honey, salt, and pepper. Slowly pour in the olive oil, whisking constantly, to form an emulsion. If not using within an hour, store the vinaigrette covered in the refrigerator. Place the arugula, watermelon, feta, and mint in a large bowl. Drizzle with enough vinaigrette to coat the greens lightly and toss well. Taste for seasonings and serve immediately.
