1/2 large seedless watermelon, cut into bite size pieces (6 cups)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (fig, raspberry or regular balsamic, whatever you have)
Bunch of fresh basil, chopped (could also use fresh cilantro or fresh mint)
1/2 small red onion, sliced thinly (approx. 1/3 cup)
3 cups arugula (or baby spinach could work too)

Cube watermelon into bite sized pieces, either small squares, or you could also use a melon baller.  Cut feta cheese into bite size pieces.  Place in large bowl.  Add in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, red onion & arugula.  Toss until combined.  Serve immediately.
