This salad is bright, light, and peppery – the perfect summer salad…

Even though it’s winter.

Yes, I was having summer nostalgia and made this salad on a rainy day. When I pared it with an iced green tea, it almost felt like summer! My winter denial is not a new thing; I’m definitely one of those people who gets sad when it’s gloomy. I often find myself trying to recreate summer experiences in the winter, which, in the Bay Area you can often get away with.

Of course, you can recreate just about any experience with food! And this salad does the trick. It literally takes 5 minutes to make, and has 5 ingredients. Pretty perfect!

The Ingredients

1) Organic Canned Corn (rinsed)

2) Cherry tomatoes, quartered

3) Fresh arugula

4) Goat Cheese Crumbles

5) Sliced almonds (toasted) – which I added at the very end and forgot to take a picture of! These are optional, though. They give the salad a great crunch, but it also tastes good sans-almonds.

The Directions – one step only: Toss all the ingredients together with a simple dressing made of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper.

It’s summer on a plate!

Appetizers are the perfect complement to my favorite entrees and dinner party menus. You can also make a small batch for a snack, or turn them into a complete meal.

  1. Love all your recipes and keep it up.
    I am still at cooking 101 level so pardon the naivety.
    The almonds if you can post which one you usually buy? Are they already sliced and toasted?
    By what I am reading on your other recipes if I had to guess you usually buy those from Trader Joe’s as well 🙂
    Loved the Healthy Omelette by the way.
    Thanks.

    • Thank you so much!! And no worries at all these are great questions! For the almonds, yes, I usually buy sliced and toasted almonds – saves a lot of prep time that way 🙂 You can get them from any store, Trader Joe’s definitely has some delicious roasted and sliced almonds as well 🙂 Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions!

  2. I made this for our Super Bowl party as a healthy alternative (it was a pretty high carb menu). I couldn’t find straight arugula at the grocery store so I used spring mix. They didn’t have goat cheese either so I substituted feta. I made a homemade balsamic vinaigrette dressing. It was great and I had enough left for lunch today. Thanks 🙂

    • Yaaay!! Substituting feta is perfect for this salad 🙂 And a homemade balsamic dressing is my go-to in almost every salad I make! So glad it turned out well and that you enjoyed it! Thanks for letting me know!

  3. I love the idea of the simplicity of this salad: 5 ingredients and 5 minutes. So many people wrongly believe that healthy eating is time consuming. This post helps dispel that belief. Visually appealing, healthy and delicious! How can you go wrong?

    Thanks for sharing,

    Michelle

    • Thanks so much! And yes – totally agree – healthy eating doesn’t have to be time consuming, boring, or tasteless. It can be as delicious and easy as making something less healthy if you know the right ingredients to put together. Thanks again, so glad you enjoyed the recipe!

  4. Wow what a gorgeous salad, I would devour this right up!! If you haven’t already, feel free to stop by my blog and check out the $50 Williams-Sonoma gift card giveaway going on right now! xoxo
