This watermelon and arugula salad is a quick and healthy summer salad recipe. The slight bitterness of arugula leaves is perfectly balanced with the sweet juiciness of watermelon in this salad.

In a large mixing bowl, add the maple syrup, rock salt, zest the lime and squeeze out all the juice. Whisk together with a fork.
Add in the chopped watermelon and gently toss to coat the watermelon with the dressing.
Add mint and arugula leaves. Toss to combine. Sprinkle pecans and chia seeds.
Check and adjust for seasoning and serve chilled.
This salad recipe is ideal for low-cal, vegan and gluten-free diets.
In this salad I add pecans just like that because I wanted to keep everything raw, but sometimes I also add
to the watermelon salad. They add a toasty flavour.
Rock salt (also known as himalayan black salt) is known for its cooling properties and is very often used in summers. If you don’t have black salt, use regular salt or coarse sea salt.
