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.

    That is a gorgeous salad. Have you thought about adding some mango to it?

    I have a recipe similar with mangos and strawberries and it is delicious. I have made it with strawberries alone and it was just as good, though.

    I have not thought to add mango to this salad. Sounds intriguing.
