Fresh Corn & Arugula Salad

 I am madly in love with this summer salad.  I tried it for the first time at Whole Foods Market a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t resist making it at home. It’s so simple and yet so full of flavor!! It’s the perfect dish to bring to a BBQ, take to a picnic or just eat it for lunch.

I recently prepared it for a group of ten hungry kundalini yogis and all asked for some more! If you are cooking for a smaller group of people, you might want to cut down on the recipe … OR maybe not! 😉 Enjoy it and let me know how you like it! 

Corn & Arugula Salad

This is the perfect refreshing salad to enjoy all summer long. It’s light, healthy and tasty. The sweet corn perfectly pairs with the peppery taste of arugula.
