Watermelon & Arugula Salad

  • ½ pound baby arugula leaves
  • 2 pounds seedless watermelon, ¾-inch-diced (3 pounds with the rind)
  • ¹⁄³ cup good olive oil
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½-pound chunk Parmesan cheese

Place the arugula and watermelon in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Pour enough dressing on the arugula to moisten. Toss well and place on 6 salad plates.

With a very sharp knife or a vegetable peeler, shave the Parmesan into large shards and sprinkle them on the arugula and watermelon. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
