Arugula, Watermelon & Feta Salad

During the summer I cannot get my fill of watermelon. I want to eat it on the daily! And while the salad I made on Sunday evening was nice and basic I decided to step up my game a little on Monday evening. Thanks to this recipe by Ina Garten I was able to incorporate this amazing salad into a delicious meal!
For the vinaigrette:
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (2 oranges when using a real juicer)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
1/4 cup minced shallots (1 large)
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup good olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

6 cups baby arugula, washed and spun dry
1/8th seedless watermelon, rind removed and cut into 1-inch cubes
12 ounces of good feta cheese
1 cup whole fresh mint leaves, julienned 

Whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, shallots, honey, salt & pepper. Slowly pour in the olive oil, whisking constantly, to form an emulsion. If not using within the hour, store the vinaigrette covered in the refrigerator. 

Place the arugula, watermelon, feta and mint in a large bowl. Drizzle with enough vinaigrette to coat the greens lightly and toss well. Taste for seasoning and serve immediately. 
Bon Appetit!
