Salt & Black Pepper, to taste


In a bowl, combine your arugulat, blue cheese, pista- chios, lemon juice, olive oil and seasoning. Place to one side.

Using a disk/cookie cutter, shape out 2 circles in the flesh of the watermelon. Pat with a with a paper towel to soak up excess moisture, then lightly brush both sides with oil.
