Are you ready for the 4th of July? We don’t have any big plans because we are in the middle of moving, but there will be fireworks and good food. The boys love fireworks and I love food, everyone wins:)

Josh is going to fire up the grill while I make a few salads, sides, and dessert. I know this Watermelon, Blueberry, and Jicama Arugula Salad will be making an appearance. It is the perfect summer salad!

To make the salad, I start with arugula. I love the sweet and peppery flavor. If you aren’t a fan of arugula, any greens will work, but give arugula a try. It is such a good green!

I top the arugula with watermelon cubes, blueberries, jicama, feta, and pepitas. The watermelon keeps the salad refreshing and cool, the blueberries add a juicy punch, the jicama and pepitas give the salad a little crunch, and the feta cheese adds a nice creaminess! Oh, and I finish the salad off with a simple honey lime dressing. Mmmmmm!
