ROASTED CORN WITH BASIL-SHALLOT VINAIGRETTE
Prep time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 20 minutes. Serves: 4
3 cups fresh corn kernels
2 tbsp extra-virgin oliver oil
¼ cup chopped fresh basil
1 tbsp minced shallot
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
¼ tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 450°F. Toss corn and oil to coat and spread out on a large baking sheet. Bake, stirring once, until some kernels begin to brown, about 20 minutes. Combine basil, shallot, vinegar, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the corn; toss to coat. Serve warm or cold.
Note: Can be made in advance; cover and refrigerate for up to one day.
Hint: This can be made with asparagus, which is really good. If fresh corn is not available, you can use frozen corn.
