Golden Corn Salad with Fresh Basil

    Made as a side for burgers rather than main dish, so served half-portions. Subbed mixed baby greens for the arugula, otherwise followed directions. Vibrant, fresh, and sweet. A very nice change from slaws or potato salads.

    Very tasty! Briefly cooked the fresh corn in skillet with tiny bit of butter, salt and pepper - we all liked the corn slightly warm in the salad. Used ricotta salata instead of goat cheese. Basil and cherry tomatoes from the garden.

    This salad was fantanstic! I used fresh mozzarella instead of the goat cheese but otherwise made the recipe as is. The peppery arugala with the fresh corn, tomatoes and basil is a great summer combination. And the dressing was wonderful. The white balsamic adds a nice sweetness to it. It makes a lot. More than you need as a side salad. Although, my husband finished the whole platter!

    Very tasty & easy to put together since I cooked & chilled the potatoes in the a.m. Served with grilled tenderloin steaks & garlic bread to company over Labor Day weekend; some had never tried arugula before. They loved it!

    The freshness in this salad is the key! Use fresh corn and fresh basil (not dried!). I used grape tomatoes and 1.5 lbs of butter potatoes. I was worried that the potatoes would be too much, but I found it was a nice change in texture from the corn and the potatoes. Quite good, and I would make this for guests!

    Absolutely incredible. I am not much of a tomato fan but these tomatoes complimented the entirety of the dish making each bite wonderful. I paired this with a grilled steak and it ended up being a really nice pairing. This one will become a staple in the household.

    The family loved this - picky husband and 4 yr old. I added some grilled chicken, but perfect and delicious as is!! This will become a staple - really easy and so tasty!

    The flavors of this salad are incredible together. It was very easy to make, was very colorful, and will be on my table frequently.

    While I didn't have fresh basil or goat cheese available, the salad was excellent using dried basil & monterey jack as substitutes. Suitable for company, but easy enough to prepare quickly after a long day of work. If you have pre-cooked red potatoes on hand, the recipe takes even less time. Easy to make!

    This salad is sooo easy to make- and tastes amazing. I made it for dinner last night with corn, peppers and tomatos from the garden. My DH LOVED it! We will make it again next week, for sure. A great way to use your fresh veggies. It's light but filling. I skipped the basil and only put in 2.5 cups of arugula. We had plenty left over, even after DH had 3 servings!

    This salad was amazing. I cooked the corn and think it was really fantastic, so I would definitely do it that way in the future. I reviewed the recipe in detail here: misschefy.wordpress.com

    This is a great salad to serve alone or with grilled fish, chicken or whatever. It's delicious!

    Such a hit at parties!! Lots of ways to change it up, too - though it is perfect just the way it is.

    This salad is wonderful! I followed the recipe exactly and will definitely make this again, as it combines the flavors of summer perfectly!

    Fabulous salad! I substituted Spring Mix for the Arugula and Feta for the Goat Cheese. Will definitely make again!

    Our vegan neighbors LOVE this salad and they are "foodies." I just eliminate the cheese for them and add it for other guests.

    I used corn since fresh isn't locally available yet. I left out the cheese altogether so my vegan sister could eat this, and since I was also serving a mixed greens tossed salad didn't add arugula either. Excellent switch from routine potato salad, and beautiful to look at. Went well with steamed lobsters and steaks for the 4th. Everyone liked it. Will definitely make again.
