Watermelon Salad With Crispy Pancetta




Life without AC is no life to live! Currently sweating, sitting in my underwear typing up this recipe! Watermelon seems like it’s the only thing that is cooling me down, quenching my thirst, and keeping me full. While the past two days have not been so clean-eating friendly, I’ve been researching ways to optimize your “cheat” day and not let it get you down. “Cheat” does not mean binge. So, I’ll be filling up on lots of protein, fiber, and clean eats today to get right back on track. Ending my start-stop pattern today! Cooking up some lean meals, and off to the pool to cool down.

Enough about me – try this Watermelon Feta Salad with Crispy Pancetta as a light a refreshing meal. This was inspired by a local restaurant by my work place, SO DELISH!



What you’ll need:

Half of one large watermelon

1 Bag Pre-Washed Arugula

Low Fat Crumbled Feta Cheese

1 Pack or 3 Slices Thick-Cut Pancetta


Olive Oil

Balsamic Vinegar


Salt & Pepper


Cut Watermelon into bite size cubes and place in large mixing or salad bowl. Mix in Arugula and toss. Top with Feta. ย Slice pancetta into 1/4 inch pieces and place lightly greased stove top pan on medium heat. Fry lightly until strips become crispy but not over cooked. Remove from pan and place on paper towel lined plate. Once cooled, roughly chop and toss with salad.

Mix dressing to desired taste and dress lightly.
