Tahini – Corn Arugula Salad

Tahini – Corn Arugula Salad

2 min read

Corn is hard to find organic and when I do; I savor every last kernel.

This sacred food is one that i’m looking forward to growing in the future. The world is very much built on the ears of corn. It’s the crop that made a lot of this experience possible. I’m looking forward to us reconnecting with a food that holds such a powerful significance and tending to it with respect.

My earliest memories of corn come paired with butter, lime, salt, chili powder and crema. Elote is Mexican street food that combines these ingredients on top of grilled corn and WOW. Incredible.

This recipe is an extension of my love for Elote, made simple.

I always have a jar of homemade tahini dressing in the fridge and it somehow houses a similar flavor to traditional elote.

It makes for a beautiful easy salad that i think you’re going to love.
