Use any kind of watermelon for this simple salad, although seedless looks best.

1 cup (250 mL) mint leaves

1 tbsp (15 mL) balsamic vinegar
¼ cup (60 mL) olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
½ cup (125 mL) slivered almonds, toasted

1 Combine arugula, watermelon, feta and mint leaves in a bowl. Whisk together balsamic, olive oil and salt and pepper. Toss with salad. Lay on a platter and garnish with almonds.
