Watermelon Arugula Goat Cheese Salad

Summer is *almost* over. Although the weather here in Boston has been screaming fall this week… This makes me very sad. I do feel like I had a great summer, and I do love fall, but I’m not ready to think about what that means is coming next. Winter. Blech. Last winter was brutal, and I’m just not ready for it. Hubby, on the other hand, can’t wait to bust out his snowboard…

As I’m clinging to these last few days and hours of summer, I’ve been eating as much summer produce as possible. This salad is a simple way to highlight some delicious watermelon. The peppery arugula and salty goat cheese provide a great contrast to the sweet juicy watermelon.

I didn’t actually follow a recipe here, I just threw things together.

    If I were judging this contest.. even with my dislike of cranberries (usually) you would win the grand prize.

    Not only for the combination of flavors which has me salivating – but for presentation. I absolutely LURVE the cranberry sauce under the pretty white maple buttercream. *swoon*

    Hi!

    I’m Veronica, I’m trying this recipe but how much Baking soda is it?
    You put in the directions to mix it, but in the ingredients is missing.
    Thank you!
    Later on I’ll let you know how they baked!

    Regards!

    Veronica – It’s a typo in the instructions. It should say Baking Powder. I have corrected the post.
