How to Make CORN, TOMATO & GREEN BEAN SALAD WITH BASIL OIL

Step-by-Step

Add the green beans to the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and run cold water over the top to stop the cooking process.
  • 2Cut the kernels away from the cobs and add the kernels to a medium mixing bowl. Add the green beans and tomatoes.
  • 3In a food processor, add the basil leaves. Turn on the food processor and slowly add oil in the top. Process until smooth. Season with a pinch of salt and a couple turns of a pepper grinder.
  • 4Drizzle the basil oil over the corn, tomatoes, and green beans. Toss to coat the salad.
  • 5NOTE: You may prefer your green beans cooked a bit longer than 5 minutes.
