  2. 1-1/2  cups cooked rice, cooled
  3. 1  pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  4. 1  cup fresh arugula

Directions

  1. Husk corn and remove silk with a stiff brush; rinse. Cook corn in boiling, lightly salted water for 3 minutes. Remove corn; let cool. Cut corn off the cob in planks.

Use a spatula to gently move planks to salad.
  2. Combine cooked rice, tomatoes, arugula, onion and jalapeño pepper. Transfer to serving bowl; top with corn.
  3. Drizzle with vinegar and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serves 10 to 12.
