Corn and Green Bean Salad

As promised this is the salad that I served with the Zucchini Green Onion Biscuits.  This salad along with the biscuits give you a complete meal, perfect for using the bounty from your garden or farmer's market.  Also this is a great light meal for those hot summer days.  Putting corn and green beans in a salad may sound odd.  It becomes a tasty combo.  Enjoy!

Corn and Green Bean Salad

1 tbsp. rice vinegar
3/4 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp. finely minced fresh basil
2 green onions, finely minced
2 ears of corn
8 ounces of fresh green beans
3 packed cups baby spinach and kale
1 packed cup fresh flat leaf parsley leaves
1 large tomato diced

Combine the first eight ingredients, vinegar through green onion, in a small bowl and whisk together.  Cook the corn and cut off cob.  Blanch green beans in boiling water for 1 minute.  Remove and rinse with cold water.  Drain and cut in half diagonally.  Once completely cooled combine beans, corn, spinach and kale, parsley and tomato.  Toss with the dressing and enjoy.

I've changed this up by grilling the corn and beans.  I've have also added diced jalapeno pepper and avocado.  Make it your own and have fun in the kitchen.
