Corn and Shrimp Chowder

Dorothy Lynch was my favorite salad dressing when I was kid. It was the only dressing I would eat on my salads. Several months ago, my sister told me she had made meatloaf using a recipe she found on the Dorothy Lynch bottle. That got me thinking as to what other recipes were available using this dressing. I checked out the website and found this recipe of Corn and Shrimp Chowder. It is absolutely delicious. The dressing gives it a sweet taste at first and the cayenne pepper gives it a little kick in the end. I had also never cooked with arugula before. I have always heard that it has a peppery taste and I really enjoyed it. It helped to balance out the sweetness of the dressing. I am hoping to have the time to try some more new recipes this weekend. If not, I will be next weekend as I make some good snacks for the Super Bowl. ENJOY!

1 ½ - 2 cups frozen sweet corn kernels
4 slices bacon
1 medium white onion, chopped
