This vegan watermelon and arugula salad is mildly sweet and deeply refreshing. The flavor contrast between peppery, sweet, herbaceous, and creamy makes the salad really enjoyable to eat. Includes an easy balsamic dressing.
You can substitute cooked barley, wild rice, brown rice, or millet for the quinoa.
Instead of the vegan feta, you can use half a large (or a whole small) avocado, cut into cubes
If you plan to make the salad in advance, you can prepare and store the ingredients and dressing each in separate containers so none of them gets soggy. Combine and mix only when ready to serve.
