Here’s a shot of the ingredients I used for my salad.

How To Make Summer Salads

  1. In a large salad bowl, layer the arugula leaves, strawberries, blueberries, charred corn, feta cheese and glazed pecans.
  2. To prepare dressing, place olive oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper into a mason jar. Close with lid and shake for a minute, or until emulsified.
  3. Drizzle desired amount of dressing over salad and serve.

Summer Corn Salad

For the charred corn, I placed my ears of corn right on the grill brushed with just a little olive oil. I used my indoor stovetop grill.

If you haven’t had charred corn before, you are in for a treat. It has the best smoky flavor….and paired with bacon, yum!

Berries are always a good idea for salad.

I happen to love arugula leaves for my salads, but if you prefer a different green, by all means switch it out. Same goes for the feta cheese.

I like to prepare my dressing in a mason jar. Start with olive oil and balsamic.

How To Make Honey Vinaigrette

  1. To prepare dressing, place olive oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper into a mason jar. Close with lid and shake for a minute, or until emulsified.
  2. Drizzle desired amount of dressing over salad and serve.

A little honey, brown mustard, salt and pepper.

Close lid…..

…and shake, shake, shake!

I just love everything about this salad, you’ll love it!
