Summer salad: charred corn & arugula. Champagne Honey vinaigrette

Sweet & Tangy
The perfect Summer salad

Nothing screams late summer like fresh sweet corn and when roasted over fire takes on a whole ‘nother level of flavor. Combine with some spicy greens and luscious dressing and you’ve got a memorable salad that goes great with a spicy pork chop or grilled steak. Ok, it’s amazing by itself too! Throw some rotisserie chicken in there and you’ve got a perfect lunch.

The key to any great salad is the freshness of the ingredients so canned corn is definitely a no-go on this one. The quantities listed in the ingredients are just a guide, so feel free to throw a little more or a little less of this or that into the mix.
