Arugula Salad with Grilled Chicken, Corn, Tomatoes, and Blue Cheese

Source: Everyday Food, July 2009


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for grates
  • 1 pound chicken cutlets
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 ears corn, husks and silks removed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 pound arugula (about 3 bunches), thick stems removed
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced into wedges
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola (2 ounces)


  1. Heat grill to high; clean and lightly oil hot grates. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Grill until opaque throughout, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Let rest 5 minutes; cut into strips.

  2. Cut off tip of each cob. Stand corn in a wide shallow bowl; using a sharp knife, slice downward to release kernels. Discard cobs.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice and oil; season with salt and pepper. Add arugula, tomatoes, Gorgonzola, chicken, and corn and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

    I did end up making this, and it was amazing! So flavorful! I agree that using peak vegetables really takes it to the next level (and definitely grill the corn). It was really simple to make too. Everyone raved! I will certainly be adding this to my regular rotation. Martha Stewart is my hero :-)

    I haven't tried this exact recipe, but hundreds like it. Personally, I would definitely grill the corn, for added flavor and add fresh, chopped herbs, like thyme or basil. The cheese will add a lot of flavor and peak of the season vegetables have special flavors of their own that you don't want to cover up with a thick salad dressing.

    I think they left out the part about grilling the corn. Remove the silks but keep the husks on, then grill the corn for about ten minutes on medium-high.

    Has anyone tried this recipe yet? There's so little seasoning, it sounds like it might be bland. I was going to make it tonight but now having second thoughts.

    Is the corn uncooked?

    I would recommend the gorgonzola...a little milder than blue, but in the same family.

    Blue cheese or gorgonzola? :)
