Be sure to get just-from-the-field beans and corn and blanch them just long enough to tenderize them and bring out their color.
Diet Types: Low Sodium, Vegan, Vegetarian
Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  • 3 ears corn, shucked
  • 1/2 small red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup black olives, halved and pitted
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • a few drops of hot sauce to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Serves: 8
    Cooking Time: Under 30 minutes
    Instructions:
    Place a large pot of water on the stove to boil. Fill another large pot half full with ice water. When the water in the first pot has reached a rolling boil, add about half of the green beans and blanch just until tender, 1-2 minutes, then immediately plunge them into the ice water. Repeat with the rest of the beans. Bring the water back to a boil. Add corn and blanch until tender but still crisp, about 3 mintues. Drain and immediately plunge into the ice water. Cut the kernels off the cobs. In a large bowl, combine the beans, corn and all remaining ingredients; toss to mix well and serve.
