Ina Garten's Watermelon and Arugula Salad

Hi, guys! How are all your summers going? We're continuing to squeeze all the fun and play we can out of this one. Hope you're all doing the same! Here's a salad for you!
This is a nice little summer salad- it's light and refreshing. Enjoy!
Recipe (serves 6):

1/2 pound arugula leaves
2 pounds seedless watermelon, cut into bite size cubes
1/3 cup good olive oil
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 pound Parmesan cheese, shaved into shards

In a large bowl, place arugula and watermelon. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pour enough dressing over the arugula and watermelon to moisten. Toss well and serve it up on salad plates. Finish by shaving the parmesan over the salad. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.
