Fresh Corn Salad
The best way to enjoy the tastes of summer is in salads. Fresh corn on the cob is delicious anyway you eat it, but throw in some cannellini beans for protein, fresh chopped garden tomatoes, kalamata and green olives for zest, fresh lime juice for zing, fresh garden herbs and now you've got a healthy and delicious meal for one.
It's so easy...
Just boil 1 corn the cob for 10 minutes in water with a little salt and sugar covering the corn half way. Drain and set aside. When cool, cut off the kernels and place in a medium bowl.
2 tablespoons of drained and rinsed cannellini beans
1/2 garden tomato (chopped)
3 sliced kalamata olives
3 sliced green olives
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons fresh assorted fresh herbs (parsley, basil, thyme, etc.)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil.
Add a dash of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, mix and your done!
