This recipe is shared with us from Lauren K. Stein, author of Fresh Made Simple, a family-friendly illustrated cookbook. Arugula Corn Pear Salad is the ultimate way to enjoy late season local corn! If you don’t have pears on hand, you can always substitute with sliced apples! Keep the fennel and onion sliced super thin, and load on the corn and goat cheese. Top it with a balsamic vinaigrette, if you like. This is a great family salad because even if your kids don’t eat “salad,” they are almost certain to eat all the components deconstructed on their plate, and some goat cheese spread on crackers.

Thanks Lauren!
