DEERFIELD – Beth Irons of the Oneida County Public Market joined NewsTalk Friday afternoon to share her recipe for Summer Corn Salad.

The Oneida County Public Market is held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday throughout the summer outside Union Station in Utica.

SUMMER CORN SALAD

INGREDIENTS
4 ears fresh corn on the cob, cleaned and washed
1 (10.5 ounce) package grape tomatoes, halved
8 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into bite size pieces
10 basil leaves, chiffonade (roll leaves and slice thinly)
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground coarse black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Cut corn off the cob, place into a medium mixing bowl.
2. Add tomatoes and mozzarella.
3. Sprinkle with basil. Set aside.
4. Add fresh lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper to a pint size canning jar.
5. Shake to combine.
6. Pour dressing over salad. Toss to combine.

Serve and enjoy!


NOTES
If making ahead; prep the salad and the dressing and wait to pour dressing over salad until ready to serve. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

You can cook the corn if you prefer. The acid in the lemon juice will mellow out the starchiness of the corn and create a fabulous flavor.
