Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • For vinaigrette, combine basil, sugar, and salt in a food processor. Cover and process until the basil is finely chopped, stopping to scrape down sides as necessary. Add vinegar and mustard; cover and process until combined. With the processor running, slowly add oil in a steady stream until mixture is smooth.

  • Cut corn kernels from cobs; discard the cobs. Cook the corn and green beans in a large saucepan in a large amount of boiling water about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Rinse with cold water to cool; drain again.

  • Combine the corn and beans, cucumber, tomatoes, bell pepper, and scallions in a large bowl. Pour the vinaigrette over the vegetables; toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before serving.
