Corn, Arugula & Tomato Salad

From EatingWellSummer 2004

Fresh corn and tomatoes make an especially attractive and delicious summer salad. Sweet corn balances the peppery arugula and tart tomatoes.


"Great salad! But too much oil (much more than necessary). I used 2 tablespoons and next time will use only 1. "

Corn, Arugula & Tomato Salad Recipe


  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups loosely packed arugula, (about 6 ounces)
  • 2 cups corn kernels, (about 4 ears)
  • 1 1/2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved


  1. Combine vinegar and shallots in a large bowl and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  2. Whisk oil into the vinegar mixture until blended. Season with salt and pepper. Add arugula and toss to coat. Arrange the arugula on serving plates. Add corn and tomatoes to the bowl, toss to coat with the dressing that remains, then spoon the mixture over the arugula and serve.

Light Ginger-Citrus Napa Cabbage Slaw

Originally from Happy. Healthy. Life. Via veganfeast.

This isn’t your grandma’s cabbage slaw. One of my favorite uses for Napa Cabbage is to chop it up into a raw vegan slaw. Light flavors of ginger and citrus give this dense tender cabbage variety a bright zesty flavor. Instead of going heavy on dark soy sauce or a heavy helping of vegan cream, this slaw recipe stays light and palate cleansing. It makes a perfect side dish for a sunny day meal…

Light Ginger Citrus Napa Slaw

vegan, serves 4

3-4 cups Napa Cabbage, chopped into thin 2 inch strips
1 small yellow bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup orange slices or mandarin segments
1 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp Vegenaise
1-2 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated
2 tsp agave syrup
1 tsp paprika
dash of salt as needed
optional add-in: 1/2 cup chopped flat parsley

Add cabbage, bell pepper and citrus slices to large bowl.
Add vinegar, oil, vegenaise and agave syrup.
Toss well.
Add in salt, pepper, ginger, paprika and lemon juice.
Toss well again.
Chill until ready to serve.
A few hours in the fridge will assist in marinating the cabbage.
*for a creamier slaw simply add more vegenaise.

Serve as a side dish or salad.

More optional add in ideas:
cayenne, garlic, sliced almonds, pea shoots, sliced fennel, cold snow peas, bean sprouts, toasted sesame seeds.

Avocado and Green Tomato Gazpacho

I salvaged a handful of green tomatoes when the next-door-neighbor cleared out her tomato bushes. Need to find something to do with them.

From Raw Food Home Recipes.

Avocado and Green Tomato Gazpacho
I literally JUST made this for dinner, accompanied by flax crackers. A few more ingredients than I would like, but with everything on hand, and with the assistance of MY BEAUTIFUL NEW VITAMIX (YESSSS!), I whipped it up really fast. Pretty yummy, but mine needed more tomato and less avocado. I was in the mood for something a tad lighter. I picked up this recipe in the Washington Post, believe it or not.
  • 3 medium-sized green tomatoes, cored and diced
  • 1 small orange or yellow bell pepper, cored and minced
  • 1 medium-sized (7-inch) cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
  • A handful of flat-leaf parsley
  • A handful of cilantro
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced or pressed
  • ½ tsp salt (or more, to taste)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 to 3 tbpn extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 1 cup cold water
  • Black pepper and cayenne to taste
  • Up to 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice (to taste)

Combine everything in a large bowl and stir to mix well. Using an immersion blender or a regular stand blender, puree all or part of the soup, as desired. Transfer to a container with a lid, cover tightly and chill until very cold. Serve cold. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
