Summer Bean Salad with Black Olives

Diet Type: Low Sodium

Cooking Time: Under 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  3 ears corn, shucked
  1/2 small red bell pepper, finely chopped
  1 small red onion, finely chopped
  1/2 cup black olives, halved and pitted
  1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
  3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  3 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  2 cloves garlic, minced
  a few drops of hot sauce to taste
  salt and pepper to taste
 
Directions:

Place a large pot of water on the stove to boil. Fill another large pot half full with ice water. When the water in the first pot has reached a rolling boil, add about half of the green beans and blanch just until tender, 1-2 minutes, then immediately plunge them into the ice water. Repeat with the rest of the beans. Bring the water back to a boil. Add corn and blanch until tender but still crisp, about 3 mintues. Drain and immediately plunge into the ice water. Cut the kernels off the cobs. In a large bowl, combine the beans, corn and all remaining ingredients; toss to mix well and serve.
