This was an awesome salad. I am kicking myself for not taking a picture of the beautiful finished product. I didn't have parmesan but had everything else. I will be making this often. I think next time I will use less garlic. I love this so much. And the kids ate it as well.

This was so good! I had to improvise a little. Didn't have Arugala, parmesean or pecans. Used a little romaine lettuce, feta cheese and some crushed walnuts instead. It was super yummy!

Great Idea for a summer salad/side dish. I grilled the corn and used all spinach instead of arugula (my SO can't stand arugula). It was excellent. Next time I may try lime juice as the acid instead of balsamic just to see what happens.
