0 Comment


1 pound small yellow or red new potatoes, sliced
2 ears of fresh sweet corn, cooked, or 1 cup frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
4 Roma tomatoes, sliced or cut into thin wedges
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot or red onion
1/2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1/4 teaspoon sugar
 ground black pepper
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
 fresh basil leaves
  1. In a medium saucepan cook potatoes, covered, in enough boiling salted water to cover for 5 minutes or until just tender. Drain and cool. Cut corn from cobs. On a large serving platter arrange potatoes and tomatoes. Sprinkle with corn and the 1/4 cup basil.
  2. For dressing, in a screw-top jar combine oil, vinegar, shallot, mustard, sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and shake well. Pour dressing over potato mixture. Sprinkle salad with feta cheese and basil leaves.
