  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, toss arugula with olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, then arrange it on a platter.
  • Slice watermelon into 1 inch squares and set aside.

*If you worry that your guests might not enjoy biting into a basil leaf, you can chop the basil instead and sprinkle it over top before serving. I like using an herb scissors for this.
