For the Vinaigrette:

  • 1 shallot clove, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1-1/2 tsps finely minced fresh garlic
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper

For the Salad:

  • 4 ears of corn cooked and kernels cut off cob (cooled)
  • 5 oz baby arugula
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 lb sweet cherries, pitted


  • Add all ingredients for the vinaigrette to a mason jar and shake until mixed. Vinaigrette can be made 1-2 days ahead, but you will have to bring it to room temperature before using.
