Fig, Grilled Corn, and Radish Salad with Citrus Lime Dressing

Combining fresh figs with smoky grilled corn, red onion, thinly sliced radishes, sweet citrus the dressing, all served over a bed of peppery arugula—this is a colorful, quick, and flavorful salad is sure to WOW your taste buds.

Serves 4


For the Citrus Lime Dressing

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 orange, juiced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp Mexican oregano

For the Salad

  • 6 fresh figs, quartered
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup grilled sweet corn
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 3 handfuls of arugula


Whisk together the ingredients for the Citrus Lime Dressing and set aside. [We like to assemble the dressing in a glass jar with a screw top lid, for easy mixing (just shake the jar) and storage of leftovers.]

Assemble all salad ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Toss with 1/3 to 1/2 of the Citrus Lime Dressing, mound on a plate and serve.
