Arugula Salad with Fresh Corn

By: Renee Shepherd
Serves 4

The bold flavors of this salad are fabulous with any summer barbeque. Tangy, crisp, deep green arugula leaves contrast with raw sweet corn kernels, bot set off by tart/sweet balsamic vinaigrette and the nutty richness of richness of freshly shaved Asiago cheese.

Note: Using equal amounts of vinegar and oil is important in this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 very large bunch of arugula, or two smaller bunches; washed, dried and broken (if leaves are very large) into bite-size pieces (about 2 qt.)
  • 2 large ears, very fresh, sweet corn
  • ¼ cup good quality balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 oz. fresh Asiago or Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  • Put prepared arugula into a large bowl.
  • Peel off the wrapper leaves and silks from the ears of the corn.
  • With a sharp knife, cleanly cut off the kernels.
  • Break up and add the corn kernels to the arugula and toss.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar and olive oil until very well combined and blended.
  • Just before serving: toss the dressing with the salad and shave the Asiago cheese in long curls over the top of the salad.
