Are you a watermelon fan?
I generally think of it as a dessert-like fruit, but this Summer I have been enjoying watermelon goat cheese salad.
It is really refreshing, when you eat it on a warm Summer day.
This salad has a variety of flavors and textures, and they all come together beautifully.
It is sweet, sour and tart all at the same time.
I used Arugula microgreens this time, but the salad also works well with pea sprouts or regular arugula.
This was made with what my grocery store calls a ‘personal watermelon‘ that is about the size of a honeydew melon.
