Corn-Fritter-Salad-StackF

Corn is grilled and seasoned with green onions and cayenne sauce in these tasty spiced flapjacks. The grilled corn fritters make an ideal base to this salad stacked with alternating layers of tomato slices and arugula dressed in a red wine vinaigrette. This recipe comes to us from Donna of Apron Strings.

Serves 4

For the corn fritters:

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup nonfat milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 cobs corn, grilled
  • 1/3 cup green onions, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper sauce
  • a little oil or nonstick cooking spray, for preparing the skillet

For the red wine vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper, to taste

To complete the Corn Fritter Salad Stack:

  • 8 cups arugula
  • 4 large, ripe tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick

To make the corn fritters:

Cut the grilled corn kernels off of the cob to make about 1 1/2 cups grilled corn kernels. Set aside.

Place the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Stir in the milk, egg, corn kernels and green onion. Season with the hot sauce and stir until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Prepare a large skillet with a light layer of oil or nonstick cooking spray. Drop 1/4 inch mounds of batter into the pan and flatter into 1/2 inch thick cakes. Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, or until bubbles begin to form. Flip and cook for 1 minute more on the other side, or until the corn fritter has cooked through. Set aside and repeat until you are out of batter.

To make the vinaigrette:

 

Whisk the red wine vinegar and the olive oil together in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

 

To complete the Corn Fritter Salad Stack:

Place 4 corn fritters on 4 plates. Top with layers of tomato and dressed arugula. Repeat with alternating layers of fritters, tomato slices and arugula. Enjoy!
