Ingredients

  • For the Serrano Chile Vinaigrette:
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp champagne vinegar
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 serrano chili, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped (the recipe calls for thyme but we didn't have any)
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • For the salad:
  • 6 tbsp serrano chili vinaigrette
  • 1 medium seedless watermelon, skin and rind removed and cut into chunks
  • 1 serrano chili, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 lb baby arugula
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 5-6 oz feta, very roughly crumbled

Directions

Combine the olive, lime juice, vinegar, shallot, chili, mint, and salt in a mason jar, tighten the lid, and shake vigorously.

Place the watermelon, chilis, and arugula in large bowl. Add half of the vinaigrette. Season lightly with salt. Very gently toss in the feta. Drizzle with additional chili vinaigrette.

Serve immediately.
