Designer Bags & Dirty Diapers

Hi Things That Sparkle Readers!  I am Natalie from
Alex gave me the freedom to write about whatever I wanted to, so if you are a regular reader of my blog you know I love to cook.  Since Summer is coming to end I thought I would share one of my favorite late Summer Salads.  It is just perfect for this time of the year!    It is always a hit when we serve it at parties!  I hope you love it as much as we do!


6 ears fresh corn, husked with silks removed

2 tablespoons canola oil

Salt and pepper

2 cups halved cherry tomatoes

1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped

4 scallions, finely chopped

2 cups packed arugula


1 lemon, juiced

4 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 Teaspoon Paprika


Preheat grill or broiler to medium heat.
Rub corn with 2 tablespoons of canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill or broil corn for 7 minutes or until ears are lightly browned. Remove from grill and allow to cool. Remove the kernels from the cob and place in a large mixing bowl along with the cherry tomatoes, red pepper, scallions, and arugula.

In a small bowl, prepare dressing by whisking together lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and paprika to taste.
Toss the salad with the dressing and serve at room temperature and Enjoy!

  3. Hey girl, heyyyy!! This looks delish. I would eat anything with corn in's my fave! xoxo

  4. The mass cheap gucci handbags media has had a big shock on working the mindset of people. The garishness chanel classic bag and enchant that surrounds renown's sporting fashion hermes bag outlet has connived the populace to adopt similar louis vuitton monogram canvas
    styles for which they have cost loads of money. While many people need to look like the omega speedmaster watches most of them do not have that kind of money to pass on fashion designer dressing and accessories.

  5. Hello, thanks a lot for this post! The dish looks so yummy! :D
