Tasty Thursdays: Fresh Corn Salad

Thursday, June 30, 2011

This week features a recipe from Barefoot Contessa from the Food Network on how to make fresh corn salad. I usually eat corn during the summertime - y'know at barbeques, picnics, etc. and I thought why not add in salad? :) This yields 4-6 servings.

Ingredients:
5 ears of corn, shucked
1/2 cup small-diced red onion (1 small onion)
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 tablespoons good olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup julienned fresh basil leaves

Directions:
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the corn for 3 minutes until the starchiness is just gone. Drain and immerse it in ice water to stop the cooking and to set the color. When the corn is cool, cut the kernels off the cob, cutting close to the cob.

Toss the kernels in a large bowl with the red onions, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Just before serving, toss in the fresh basil. Taste for seasonings and serve cold or at room temperature.

Cute post!!
Love your blog so much.)))

I need your help...
In August I depart to Greece on two weeks. I don't want to sit there on one place, I want to look at all most beautiful places.
You were sometime in Greece? If yes, that there it is necessary to look and where it is possible to make beautiful photos?

Thanks for earlier.)
