First, the corn salad...
This is my go-to summer salad because there's no better time to find delicious sweet corn and delicious cherry tomatoes. Plus, this salad is simple to make, and tastes a little like vegetable candy. :)
SUMMER GRILLED CORN SALAD
For the salad
- 5 ears of sweet corn
- 1/2 basket of cherry tomatoes
- 1 package of arugula
- 1 poblano pepper (poblanos are also commonly called "pasillas")
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/2 cup Cotija cheese
For the dressing
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
- 1 lime juiced and zested
- 2 teaspoons mustard powder
Shuck the corn, and lightly coat it with vegetable oil (I used olive oil). Put the corn on a grill (or in a large frying pan on medium heat), and rotate them every few minutes until the corn starts to turn a golden color. I like to let it blacken in spots for some extra flavor.
Let the corn cool for a couple minutes, then cut off corn off the kernels and put them in a large bowl.
You can grill the pepper along with the corn. Let it cook until it softens, turning it periodically. Cut the pepper open and scrape out the seeds.
Poblanos aren't that hot, but the seeds can still burn if you touch them, then touch your eyes, so be careful. Dice, and add to the corn. If you want to add some extra heat, you can also add a jalapeno in addition to the poblano.
Since Cotija is a strong cheese, I like to cut my pieces into 1/4 inch cubes so the flavor is more evenly distributed when I add it to the salad.
For the dressing, combine olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, red wine vinegar, and mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add the cheese, arugula, cilantro, tomatoes, and dressing. Mix well and you've got summer in a salad! It tastes great served warm, or you can keep it in the refrigerator overnight, and serve chilled the next day.
