Everyone loves corn in the summer- it’s sweet, savory, and genuinely makes people happy!
We are all familiar with the preparation of the summer classic “corn on the cob” but an even better way to highlight this popular summer vegetable is is to make a beautiful, bright corn salad.
This simple, delicious recipe is sure to be the star side dish at your next bar-b-que. (Better still, it’s a great way to use up all that basil that is starting to peak!) Corn & basil salad is a fantastic way to highlight the best of our local summer produce and herbs. The perfect complement to any summer gathering.
Feaster’s Tip: You can make it ahead. Here is how.
- Cook, prep & refrigerate the corn.
- In a separate container, make the dressing, omitting the basil, and refrigerate.
- About an hour before serving the salad, dress the corn being careful not to overdress (you may have extra dressing).
- Right before serving add the basil so it stays crisp and retains its color.
