Fresh Corn Salad
- For dressing, in a glass bowl whisk together vinegar, sugar, the 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and black pepper until sugar is dissolved. Let dressing stand while preparing salad.
- For salad, cut corn kernels from cobs. In a large bowl toss corn and remaining ingredients except sea salt and arugula leaves.
- To serve, transfer salad to large serving bowl. Season with the 1/2 tsp. sea salt. Add the dressing; gently thread in arugula leaves. Serve immediately. (Cucumbers and tomatoes will begin to break down.) Makes 8 servings
From the Test Kitchen
Wear kitchen gloves when handling hot peppers, such as jalapenos to avoid burning skin and eyes with volatile oils. When hands touch peppers, wash immediately in warm sudsy water.

This recipe is absolutely insanely delicious! My new favorite salad. I ate (devoured) the whole bowl in 3 days! It's a great summer salad - super refreshing- that I can't wait to make for a crowd when the weather is hot. Love it!

Love this - Corn on the cob was out of season so I substituted with 1/2 bag of organic frozen corn, letting it thaw naturally on the counter. It was loved by all!!!

I know it says 8 servings but it might be nice if you could list what the serving size is.

Is the corn cooked first?

Made this tonight as I saw fresh corn at the market and am ready to get back in the saddle with summer cooking. I got the basil and arugula at a local farmers market (seatttle....we just don't have farmers markets with all the great stuff till August). This is a perfect blend of peppery and sweet. I added extra arugula because I am just coming off winter and used to it being tasteless, but the stuff I got at the farmers market was fabulous, I only did half the dressing amount (calories, 1/4 cup of sugar really???) and found it just perfect. I grilled the corn which probably added extra sweetness making the extra sugar not necessary, at lease for my tastes. Awesome summer salad that I feel great about eating.
