The Flavors of Summer
6 ears of corn, boiled and cooled, kernels cut from cob (to boil corn, see note below).
1/2 red onion, medium chop
1 medium ripe tomato, medium chop
1/3 cup of basil, finely chopped
Boiling corn: To keep the sweet, fresh flavor of corn, keep cooking to a minimum. Once the corn is shucked, place it in a pan of cold water. Turn the heat up to medium high. As soon as the water begins to boil, turn off the heat and remove the corn from the water.
Warm olive oil in a skillet. Add onions and sauté until they are just soft.
Add tomato and sauté until soft.
Add corn and basil to the pan. Toss the ingredients together until they are well mixed and the corn is warmed through.
Add salt and pepper to taste. A lovely addition to any summer meal.
This can be made the night before and stored in the refrigerator over night.
