Grilled Corn & Lime Salad

  • 1 cup grilled corn
    (approx 2 ears)
  • 1 lime (juice & zest)
  • 7 fresh basil leaves
    (cut into ribbons or tear)
  • 1 clove garlic
    (grated into super fine pieces)
  • 1/2 red onion (finely chop)
  • 3 plum tomatoes
    (seed & chop into small pieces) 
  • 2 big handfuls arugula
  • salt
  • pepper
Nothing is better than grilled Jersey corn in the summer (yes, NJ has more to offer than MTV's diluted & polluted view of the people that supposedly reside here, there' actually farms, food & other fun things).

To make this salad,  grill up some corn & cut it off the cob (no corn stuck in your teeth now - you're welcome) & toss it with all the other ingredients!  You may have noticed this salad has no oil so yeah it's light & delicious perfect for hot summer nights or an outdoor lunch. Bon appetit!

What do you eat when it's super hot out?
