During the summer, I find it harder to get my hands on good lettuce and I’m used to using lettuce as the base for most of my salads. The other day I was looking for greens when I came across a bunch of very fresh looking arugula. I picked it up and thought “salad!” and that’s basically it. Tomatoes, corn and avocados are a classic combo. Along with a tangy salad dressing and a new salad was born in my kitchen.
Simple and sweet!
Prep time: 5 minutes
For the salad
½ a cup of sweet corn
7-10 cherry tomatoes
1 cup of arugula
For the dressing
1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove (minced)
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Step 1: Wash and set aside to dry.
Step 2: Mix all the dressing ingredients using a spoon or a fork.
Step 3: Cut the cherry tomatoes in halves and then peel and cube the avocado.
Step 4: Toss the arugula, corn and tomatoes in a bowl.
Step 5: Serve the contents of the bowl topped with the avocado cubes and drizzle the dressing on top. Serve cold and enjoy!
