End of Summer Salad: Arugula, watermelon, balsamic vinegar

Very simple, but yet very complex tastes.

Wash and spin arugula. Add some balls (or cubes) of watermelon. If you can, sprinkle some of the watermelon juice over the leaves as well. (When you use a melon baller the juice tends to pool in the melon anyway) Sprinkle liberally with salt. Drizzle over balsamic vinegar, and a bit of oil (I happened to have some walnut oil in the fridge). This was VERY, VERY good.
The natural pepperiness of the arugula with the sweetness of the watermelon with the saltiness of the salt with the deep flavor of the vinegar ... YUM!
