Lilla’s Notes: I made this watermelon summertime salad for our family 4th of July celebration at the lake a few weekends ago. It was the first time I’ve made it and I thought it was the perfect mix of summertime fruit with a slightly tangy dressing. I bought the bagged organic arugula from Trader Joe’s…and that worked out perfect! To make it even easier, I also bought my favorite inexpensive cheese from Trader Joe’s instead of shredding my own. It’s Parmesan, Romano, & Asiago Cheese…and it’s raw and under $3.00! We enjoyed it with hotdogs, hamburgers, and sweet potato fries! Tips: Don’t make the salad too far ahead–or the dressing will wilt the arugula. You can make the dressing ahead of time and let it sit a little while before mixing it with the salad! Yum, Yum!

    Thanks for this post! Whole Foods intimidates me. I have wandered around aimlessly and then spent too much money on stuff I didn’t like. Seeing you shop practically and on normal everyday things is extremely helpful! It encourages me to try them again.
