I created this dish as a venue for showing off my favorite summer vegetable: sweet corn. But it wouldn't be the same without the softened cherry tomatoes which perk up this seasonal salad. —CheapBeets

In This Recipe
Heat olive oil in a large skillet.
After 30 seconds, add the garlic, green beans, pinch of salt and the water.
Cover, letting the beans steam away in the pan for about five minutes. While this is happening, shuck your corn, and remove the kernels by placing the corn cob in the hole of a Bundt pan and a scraping the sides with large, sharp knife.
Add corn to the skillet and give a stir. While the corn and green beans are cooking, rinse your tomatoes and cut those in half.
Add the tomatoes to skillet and give another stir. Cook for about three minutes longer, then add your basil, another pinch of salt, and cook a minute or so longer.
Share with others, if you can. I’ll understand if you can’t.
