For a different take on salad, try this watermelon, arugula, feta and mint salad. “Watermelon is great for morning sickness and helps with bloating because it’s a natural diuretic and has fiber,”.
“This salad has an amazing flavor, combined with savory elements from the feta and the herby mint and lettuce. It’s super-low in calories too.” You can eat feta as long as it’s pasteurized.
1/2 small red onion, sliced thinly and halved (about 1/4 cup)
2 Tbl. fresh lime juice
1 Tbl. extra-virgin olive oil
6 kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
1 1/2 cups ripe seedless watermelon, cut into thin triangles
1 1/2 cups arugula, loosely packed
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped and loosely packed
1/3 cup crumbled pasteurized feta cheese
- In a serving bowl, combine the onion, lime juice, olive oil and olives, and mix until combined and the onions are coated. Let stand for 15 minutes.
- Add the watermelon, arugula, mint and feta. Toss so the dressing coats the lettuce and serve.
