Ingredients

Salad

  • 10 ounces arugula or other salad greens
  • 4-5 ounces 120g or so goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 peach sliced
  • 1 ear sweet corn peeled
  • 3 Tablespoons 25g toasted and chopped nuts, optional

Dressing

  • ¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1-2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the corn and boil until soft, about 8-10 minutes. Let cool, then carefully slice off the kernels.
  • Mix the dressing ingredients in a small bowl or jar. If using a jar, shake to combine thoroughly. If using a bowl, mix thoroughly until the mustard binds everything together.
  • Add the salad greens, goat cheese, corn peach and nuts into a large mixing bowl. Serve as is, with dressing on the side, or drizzle the dressing on top and toss to combine.
