So our CSA share started back up a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that it always delights me. It’s like getting a surprise each week–a box full of vegs, some that normally I wouldn’t seek out. It definitely stretches cooking creativity (just try searching “pac choi” and see what you get…nada!)
Yet, it also reminds me that fresh, local ingredients require NO work. The simpler the better. The boys loved this salad, which proves that if you expose kids early enough to unusual flavors, they’ll be open to trying just about anything, including food they don’t recognize (aka “green” foods are not the universal enemy).
Watermelon arugula salad
- 1 bunch arugula (about 4c)
- 3 c chopped seedless watermelon
- 4 tbsp crumbled feta
- 3 tbsp chopped mint
- Drizzle of high quality balsamic vinegar
Layer ingredients. This is so easy I feel guilty calling it a recipe. Enjoy!
