Ingredients

  • For the salad:
  • 2 ears of sweet corn, shucked
  • 1 large slightly ripe peach, sliced
  • 1 english cucumber, sliced (or 2-3 persian cucumbers)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 ripe but still slightly firm avocado, sliced
  • 3 cups arugula or baby arugula
  • For the dilly tahini dressing:
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about ½ lemon, juiced)
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons warm water, to thin dressing
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Optional:
  • ¼ cup roasted pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup feta crumbles

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients for the salad: sweet corn, peach slices, cucumber sliced, cherry tomatoes, avocado, and arugula. Alternatively you can arrange the salad on a platter if you are entertaining.
  2. Next make the dilly tahini dressing by mixing together the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl: tahini, lemon juice, maple syrup, water, dill, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss with tongs, or you can drizzle it over the salad on the platter for a more beautiful effect. Top with pumpkin seeds, basil and/or feta, if desired. Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

Recipe Notes

This salad would also be delicious served over or with cooked quinoa or couscous. Feel free to add a can of chickpeas or serve with chicken to make it a full meal!
