LOCATION

Directions

  • 1 In 3-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and 1 teaspoon salt; sauté 4 to 7 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add water, milk and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Increase heat to medium-high; heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
  • 2 Very slowly stir in cornmeal with whisk. Continue cooking and stirring until thickened slightly. Stir in frozen corn; cover. Reduce heat to low; cook 5 minutes. Reserve 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Stir remaining cheese into polenta.
  • 3 In large bowl, beat oil, vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper with whisk until well blended. Add arugula; toss to coat.
  • 4 Divide polenta among 4 bowls. Top each serving with salad; sprinkle with reserved tablespoon cheese. Serve immediately.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Keep a close eye on the saucepan to make sure the milk mixture doesn't boil over. Milk isn't fun to clean off stove grates.

Experiment with different types of cheese, from white Cheddar to goat cheese.

The arugula works great stirred in or as a side salad in this dish.
