Do I smell a Bar-B-Que!!!!!!
Today marks the beginning of my LIFE as a BLOGGER!!!! I have grown up around cooking my whole life, and I can honestly say it is my biggest passion. I’ve been cooking since I could hold a spoon and now I think it is time to share my passion with the WORLD!
Yesterday my friends and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather by having a bar-b-que. We all brought a dish to the shindig, and my contribution was my FAMOUS fresh corn salad with basil oil. The dish was inspired by a corn salad I saw Giada De Laurentiis (one of my favorite Chef’s) make, but with my twist on it. The ingredients are quite simple: Yellow Corn, Grape Tomatoes, Feta Cheese, Basil, and Olive Oil…YUMMM
Corn Salad Recipe
- 1 (16oz) bag of Frozen Sweet Yellow Corn
- 1 Pint of Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
- 1 (6oz) container of Feta Cheese
- 1 pkg. of Fresh Basil
- 1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
First take the entire package of basil and place in a blinder with the olive oil and salt and pepper. Blend ingredients together until the basil is chopped finely. Set the basil oil aside to rest. Then in a mixing bowl add the tomatoes, feta, and corn together. Next pour the basil oil on the salad and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Take it out and let come to room temperature before you serve.
