Watermelon and Rocket Salad

This watermelon and rocket salad is the ultimate summer salad. With juicy watermelon, creamy feta and peppery rocket, it’s the perfect salad to accompany any summer BBQ.

The sweetness of watermelon is perfect in salads, especially when paired with rocket. The peppery taste of the rocket balances the sweet watermelon so well. This delicious salad is finished with a tangy balsamic dressing.

Feel free to use a bottled balsamic dressing if you prefer, but it’s so easy to whip up your own salad dressing that I always make my own as needed.
