recipe image

Ingredients

  • 8 fresh ears of corn

  • 12 ounces fresh haricots verts or green beans, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • cup finely chopped red onion

  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Remove husks and silks from corn. In a covered 4-quart Dutch oven, cook corn in enough boiling lightly salted water to cover for 5 to 7 minutes or until tender; drain. When corn is cool enough to handle, cut kernels from cobs (you should have about 4 cups corn kernels).

  2. Meanwhile, in a covered medium saucepan, cook beans in a small amount of boiling salted water for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain; rinse under cold water. Drain again.

  3. In a large bowl, combine cider vinegar, salt, and pepper; whisk in oil. Add corn, beans, onion, and parsley; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill for up to 4 hours.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
