Watermelon Salad

Watermelon Salad

Summer is when I usually make different types of watermelon 🍉 salad as it goes extremely well with barbecue. Always been my favorite salad as it’s so refreshing and so easy to make. This time I decided to add some arugula and sweet peppers simply because I had some lying in the refrigerator. It turned out delicious and we loved it.

The sweetness of the watermelon melon provides a good contrast to the mild spice of the sweet peppers. The red onions and cucumbers lend a traditional touch. The herbs add to the final flavors.  In addition to the health aspect, adding arugula made the salad look so colorful. Loved it.
