What Kind Of Dressing Goes On A Watermelon Arugula Salad?

Probably the easiest part of this salad is the dressing. This is one of my best cooking hacks – make the dressing in the bowl before you add the salad ingredients, then toss it all together! So easy.

I’ve kept the salad dressing super simple: I used olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and maple syrup or honey (I always use maple syrup because I prefer the taste.) That’s it!
