Arugula, Corn, Egg and Bean Salad

Arugula,Egg and Corn salad

I made this Corn, Egg and Bean Salad for lunch last week and it was simple, filling, and very tasty!

This salad makes a great accompaniment to grilled chicken or pork, but it’s also substantial enough to stand alone. Either way, be sure to have a loaf of crusty bread alongside. Buen provecho!



(4-6 servings)

  • 4 cups roasted or grilled corn kernels (4 ears)
  • 4 cooked eggs, sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 pin of grape tomatoes
  • 4 oz arugula
  • 3 cups mixed beans (white, red and garbanzo beans)
  • Dressing

  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper


Combine all the salad ingredients in a bowl. Add the dressing, then toss and serve.

That is one happy salad, Erica. I adore the colors. The citrus and cumin in the dressing is perfect.

everything i’m reading today is about corn. too bad the corn isn’t really in season here yet. they’re selling it in markets, but it’s definitely not the good local stuff that we can get in july and august.

wonderfully colorful and imaginative salad, erica! too bad the letters of the key ingredients don’t form a handy acronym. maybe you could add dill or something so it could be called the ‘abcde’ salad. :)


24 Erica June 10, 2010 at 5:15 PM

Thank you!!!!
