  • 1  teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  coarsely ground black pepper
  • 4  ears fresh corn
  • 1/2  cup  finely diced red onion (cut to same size as the clusters of corn kernels), soaked in ice water for 20 minutes and patted dry
  • 1/2  cup  cucumber, seeded, not peeled if unwaxed, then diced to same size of onions
  • 1/2  cup  red or orange sweet pepper, diced to same size as onions
  • 1/2  cup  cherry or pear tomatoes, halved or quartered

Directions

1. 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.

2. For salad, cut corn kernels from cobs. In a large bowl toss corn and remaining ingredients except sea salt and arugula leaves.

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.
