Summer is over! The weather is shockingly cool after the hottest summer in the world (literally)! I was not planning a party or picnic, but on a day like today. I cannot resist. Quick! I need recipes that reflect the season and can be made fast, fast, fast! This was the very first, so unbelievably delicious thing that came to mind.
Green Bean, Grape Tomato, and Grilled Corn Salad
1 1/2 lbs of green beans, trimmed
3 ears of corn husked
1 TBLS plus 1/2 cup EEOV
1 1/2 cups grape tomatos halved
1/3 cup packed thinly sliced fresh basil
1 large shallot, chopped
3 TBLP white wine vinegar
Cook beans in a large pot of boiling salted water until just crisp, about 4 minutes. Drain; rinse with cold water and drain again. In other circumstances, these can be made one day ahead. Chill and wrap.
Prepare BBQ to med-high. Brush corn with 1 TBSP of oil. Sprinkle with salt (I use Kosher) and pepper. Grill until browned in spots, turning to cook evenly about 10 mins. Cool
Cut kernels off cobs into a large bowl. Add beans and tomatoes. Mix basil, shallot and vinegar in medium bowl. Gradually whisk in 1/2 cup of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add dressing to salad and toss.
This salad is so flavorful and refreshing. Enjoy!
