Watermelon Salad with Arugula, Blue Cheese & Balsamic Vinaigrette


A refreshing watermelon salad with arugula and red onions, a salty and sharp blue cheese, topped with balsamic vinaigrette. Sweet, tangy, and a bit funky; this salad checks all the right boxes.


Units Scale
  • 8 cups seedless watermelon, cut in small cubes or balls
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced.
  • 1 cup sliced or slivered almonds
  • 1 cup fresh baby arugula
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled (see notes)
  • 1+1/2 TableSpoons Eleia Balsamic Vinegar available in our online shop
  • 4+1/2 TableSpoons Eleia Extra Virgin Olive Oil available in our online shop
  • 1/4 teaSpoon Sea Salt available in our online shop
  • 1/4 teaSpoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine watermelon, onion and arugula
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, salt and pepper. Drizzle over salad
  3. Just before serving, add almonds and crumbled cheese, and additional vinaigrette if needed


Blue Cheese: Buy a whole block and crumble yourself. I find the quality of the cheese is better than the one that comes pre-crumbled.
