Raw Sweet Corn and Cherry Tomato Salad


1 bag baby arugula (about 4-6 cups)

2 ears very fresh sweet corn

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved


1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 T red wine vinegar

1 tsp pure maple syrup

1/2 shallot, grated with a microplane (or chopped very finely)

tiny pinch sea salt


Holding an ear of corn in one hand, carefully run a knife down the side of the cob with your other hand, removing the kernels. Go slow---this can get messy with flying corn kernels everywhere. It's worth it though!

Place the arugula in a large bowl and toss with the corn and cherry tomatoes.

In a measuring cup, combine all dressing ingredients and whisk well. Pour over salad and toss gently.
