2 tablespoons olive oil

1 yellow onion, chopped 

One 1-pound box orzo 

4 ears fresh corn 

2 cups sliced cherry tomatoes 

4 to 5 cups baby arugula 

Lemon oil, for drizzling 

1/2 cup shaved Parmesan  

Directions

  1. Add the olive oil and onion to a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook until the onion is translucent and soft, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and let the onion cool.
  2. Cook the orzo according to the package directions.
  3. Grill or boil the corn until cooked and tender, about 5 minutes. Cut the kernels from the cobs.
  4. Mix together the onions, orzo, cherry tomatoes and corn in a large bowl. Gently fold in the arugula. Drizzle with lemon oil and sprinkle the Parmesan on top.

Cook’s Note
