… in search of better food.

Nothing really replaces plain corn on the cob, but sometimes, at the height of sweet corn season, you feel like there might be a way to shake things up just a little. Eric likes cutting the corn off the cob, so we came up with this salad of farmer’s market produce.
For two servings of this salad, mix:
1 cob of corn, boiled lightly for 2-3 mins and sliced off the cob
a handful of heirloom grape tomatoes, sliced in half
half a green onion, sliced
2-3 leaves basil, chopped
a splash of olive oil
a smaller splash of red wine vinegar
salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
With a brief break between heat waves, baking bread has once again become a reasonable endeavor.
But wouldn’t it be even better to combine fresh-baked bread with summer goodies from the farmer’s market? And wouldn’t it be the best to do it for brunch?
