I'm all about grilled vegetables during the hot summer months. Grilling vegetables adds a nice charred smoky flavor to them and brings out their natural flavors, especially with corn on the cob. It brings out a whole nother level of sweetness and crunch.
This charred corn, tomato and arugula salad features some of my summertime favorites. Ahem, que corn on the cob. I don’t know about you, but I jump for joy when I see stacks of corn on the cob in the store when summer finally hits.
Now, I know I hear people buzzing around saying that there is little to no nutritional value. But, hey it tastes devine and is so fun to eat! Side note: it actually does have some nutritional benefits. So, don’t be too quick to judge.
The combination of the three fresh ingredients provides a mouthful of flavors between sweet, earthy, peppery and tart. Toss it this tangy lemon vinaigrette for the most delicious and easiest 3 ingredient salad you will ever make. And as an added bonus, serve it with your favorite protein to make it a full meal!
If you are looking for a slam dunk, good for you side dish to bring to a summer BBQ, to accompany your weeknight dinner or even enjoy for a simple lunch, this is IT. I love this salad because it is so versatile. It is ideal for any occasion or any time of the day. Plus, you can easily make this ahead of time if you are in a time crunch or want a great meal prep for during the week. Did I mention that this will seriously be a crowd pleaser? Everyone will love it and I can guarantee they will happily be serving themselves seconds or even thirds!
