Create this gorgeous and vibrant salad with phytochemical-rich arugula and bell pepper, tomatoes, and sweet, nutritious summer corn. Tossed with our favorite Green Dream Savory Blend and you have a tasty, hydrating and nourishing summer salad!
I love making a refreshing salad like this one because it’s bright, colorful and loaded with everything I need to keep my day happy and elevated. Sweet corn balances the peppery arugula and tart tomatoes. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and savory, satisfying and hydrating, light and filling.
1 cup arugula
½ red bell pepper (sliced)
Handful of multi tomatoes (halved)
3 cups corn (fresh, grilled, or frozen)
1 small onion (chopped)
1 lemon (juiced)
1/4 cup sesame seed oil
1 tsp Green Dream Savory Blend
3 tbsp Green Dream-covered roasted pumpkin seeds (Coat seeds in superfood powders and roast them in the oven at 350F for 5-7 minutes for a wholesome crunch!)
Salt + pepper to taste
If using fresh corn, blanch the corn for 1 minute or grill the corn. If using frozen corn, thaw out the corn before using. Chop tomatoes, bell pepper and onion. In a large mixing bowl, combine the arugula, corn, bell pepper, tomatoes and onion. Add the lemon juice, sesame oil, Green Dream Savory Bend, and salt & pepper. Mix well to combine. Taste for seasoning adding more lemon juice or salt & pepper as needed. Finish with a handful of Green Dream roasted pumpkin seeds and you’re done! Enjoy right away, or let the salad sit for about 10 minutes (you can also chill it if you like). The arugula will soften and slightly wilt during that time, making it a bit easier to eat. ENJOY!
