corn and arugula salad


I have always loved the peppery taste of arugula. On one of my daily trips to Whole Foods Market (I go to this store A LOT), I decided to try a few of their mouth watering salads in the deli section. I loved the presentation of this corn and arugula salad with the corn ever so carefully cut off the cob. The taste was even better. I was so sad when I had to take my final bite and decided my mission for that afternoon was to go home and try to re-create this salad myself. After much research I found the recipe on Girl Loves Food blog. I was thrilled! I followed her instructions and sure enough it tasted just like the delicious salad I had eaten at Whole Foods. Thank God for bloggers and their love of food and their selflessness to share. So now Cashmere Apron shares this great recipe with you. Pass it on.

6 ears of fresh corn, shucked
1 bunch of arugula
1/4 cup red onion sliced thin and cut in half
1 Tb fresh thyme
1/2 Tb canola oil
1/2 Tb white wine vinegar
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Put the corn in the water and boil for 4 to 5 minutes. When corn is cooked through, take it out of the pot and let it cool for 15 minutes. While the corn is cooling, slice up the onion and set aside. Combine the thyme, canola oil and white vinegar in a small bowl, whisk with a fork and set aside. Once corn has cooled, cut the kernels off the cob using a serrated knife and place into a large bowl. Add as much arugula to the corn mixture as you like, tossing in the red onion and mixing together. Once all ingredients are mixed, pour the dressing all over and toss everything together. Serves: 6





  1. Thank you so much for figuring out this awesome Whole Foods corn and arugula salad. At $8.99 a pound I am so happy to finally get this recipe!!! Making this for our BBQ Rib New Years Day Football day!! Thanks again. Now can you figure out the recipe for Charlestons Restaurant smoke House baked beans??? My BBQ dinner would be complete with these awesome beans. Hope to see them on your site soon.

  2. From your experience, how long does the salad stay good after dressed??? Wondering if it helps to dress the day before and let the ingredients sit together, or whether it then becomes soggy????

  3. I just want to thank you so much! I love this salad at whole foods and been wanting to recreate it, but I am not savvy! I cannot wait to try it!!
