1 cup fresh arugula and/or baby spinach
1/3 cup balsamic vinaigrette
3 tbsp canola oil
1 cup (4 oz) crumbled blue cheese

In a large bowl, combine watermelon and onion; cover and refrigerate until cold (about 30 minutes).  Just before serving add nuts and arugula/baby spinach to the mixture.  In a small bowl, whisk vinaigrette and oil; drizzle over salad and toss to coat.  Sprinkle with blue cheese.
*to toast nuts, spread on baking sheet and bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
