Ingredients

2 cups absolutely fresh corn kernels (from about 3 ears)

3 cups packed arugula, trimmed

1 1/2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh oregano leaves

About 1/2 cup Whole Citrus Vinaigrette, recipe follows

Gray salt and freshly ground black pepper

Gray salt and freshly ground black pepper 

1 1/2 ounce wedge pecorino cheese

Whole Citrus Vinaigrette:

2 lemons, cut into wedges, seeded

1/2 navel orange or 1 small seedless orange, cubed

1 shallot, quartered

1 teaspoon gray salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 1/2 cups pure olive oil

Directions

  1. Combine the corn kernels, arugula, and oregano in a bowl. Add the Whole Citrus Vinaigrette, toss, and season with salt and pepper. With a vegetable peeler, shave the cheese onto the salad. Toss lightly.

Whole Citrus Vinaigrette:

  1. In a blender, place the lemons and orange cubes. Blend for 1 to 2 minutes, and then add the shallot. Pulse and then blend until as smooth as possible. Strain through a sieve, using a spoon to push through. Discard the pulp. Season the strained juice with salt and pepper. Whisk the strained juice while adding olive oil in a thin, steady stream. The vinaigrette will be thick like a mayonnaise. 
  2. Taste for seasoning. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. If the vinaigrette separates, return it to the blender and blend until smooth again.
