Summer Corn and Bean Salad

Simple, colorful, and healthy, this salad makes a lovely accompaniment to any picnic or barbecue.

4 Servings


2 cup

fresh, shelled cranberry or fava beans (about 1-1/2 pounds)

2 cup

vegetable stock or water


ears fresh sweet corn (shucked)

½ cup

extra-virgin olive oil (divided)

Salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)

2 tsp

champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar

5 oz

Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Arugula or Spring Mix

2 oz

wedge of parmesan cheese


Cook the beans in the stock until tender. Drain well and place in a medium bowl.

Scrape the kernels off the corn cobs and add to the beans. It's not necessary to cook the corn if it's sweet and tender.

Drizzle 1/4 cup of the olive oil over the beans and corn, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Make a simple vinaigrette by whisking the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil with the vinegar.

Place the arugula in a bowl and toss with the dressing. Divide the greens between 4 plates. Top each serving with some of the corn and bean mixture.

Using a vegetable peeler, shave ribbons of parmesan cheese onto the salads. Serve immediately.
