Grilled Corn, Tomato And Arugula Salad

Grilled Corn, Tomato And Arugula Salad is a terrific side dish for a BBQ dinner. Since the grill is already lit, you can just toss on the corn. The grilled corn is then mixed with arugula, tomatoes and pecans then tossed with a fragrant basil vinaigrette. I forgot to top with the shaved Parmesan before I took the photos, but that is the crowning touch for this delicious salad.

Princess Bride, anyone?

When you are lighting the grill you might want to put on ‘Startin’ Fires’. I love that sick bass line.
