Corn Salad with Radicchio and Red Onion
Summer is all about corn so start off the season’s celebration with a zesty corn salad filled with lots of savory surprises.
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 head of radicchio, sliced into ½-inch strips
3 teaspoons red wine vinegar
3 teaspoons sherry vinegar
2 ears fresh corn, kernels removed
Salt, to taste
4-5 leaves fresh basil, chiffonade
Combine the red onion and radicchio in a pan over medium-low heat and sauté with a drizzle of olive oil for about 5 minutes. Once the ingredients have cooked and softened slightly, add in the red wine and sherry vinegars. Sitr to combine and cook for 2-3 minutes, and then remove from heat and add to a medium-sized serving bowl.
Next, take the raw corn (I remove the kernels by running down the ear of corn with a chef's knife) and add it to the serving bowl with the other ingredients. Toss again and season with salt to taste. To serve, garnish with fresh basil.
