Ok, I have a confession. I stole this recipe from my mom because it was that good. This Arugula Potato “Salad” was entirely her idea, but it was too good not to share! A perfect side for one of those last BBQs or a hot day in September before summer truly ends. This is exactly what you need when you want all the fixings of a potato salad without all the mayo and additives. This salad would pair quite well with fish, chicken, burgers, ribs, steak — anything you’d serve for a classic BBQ or even an untraditional BBQ, like one with veggie or black bean burgers. You’ll definitely want seconds of this arugula potato salad and hope you leave enough for leftovers!
When I was living in Ithaca, my roommate, Alex, showed me this quick, but different way to have corn on the cob. She baked it! Lightly brushed with olive oil, salt and pepper, this is a perfect side. This is also great to make ahead of time. You can cut the corn off the cob and freeze it for salads, stir fry, pasta, a standalone side, salsa . . . So brilliant that I can’t believe I never thought to roast corn in the oven. Plus, Oven-Roasted Corn turns out to be quite tender and full of flavor!
