Corn and Green Bean Salad with Basil Oil


Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Remove the husks and silks from the corn and add to boiling water.  Cook for 5 minutes then remove from heat and allow to cool.  Add the green beans to the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and run cold water over the top to stop the cooking process.

Cut the kernels away from the cobs and add the kernels to a medium mixing bowl.  Add the green beans and tomatoes.

In a food processor, add the basil leaves.  Turn on the food processor and slowly add oil in the top.  Process until smooth.  Season with a pinch of salt and a couple turns of a pepper grinder.

Drizzle the basil oil over the corn, tomatoes, and green beans.  Toss to coat the salad.

Serves:  4
