2-3 ears fresh corn, raw or roasted
2 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 ripe avocado, diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
1 cup loosely packed chopped fresh basil
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1-2 small shallots, peeled and minced (1-2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon sea salt
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil.
Shuck the corn and remove it from cob. Use raw or grill over fire 10 – 15 minutes, turning it infrequently to give it a bit of char so it has some texture, as well as additional flavor.
Put the corn kernels, tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, and basil in a bowl and season with black pepper.
In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, shallots, salt, and olive oil. Pour the vinaigrette dressing over the salad and gently mix together.
