This is, by far, my new favorite summer salad! With just four ingredients, it’s a cinch to make – add to that that the presentation is gorgeous and the flavors play incredibly well together and it’s a winner. The peppery arugula, sweet watermelon, savory blue cheese, and kicky balsamic combine to make the perfect bite. It’s become a go-to recipe for picnics, dinner parties on the deck, or a quick dinner at home. The kids love it, too!
