    Whipper's Note:

    This salad is as delicious as it is beautiful, and makes for a great BBQ sidedish. Sometimes when I get the winter blahs, I'll make this and it feels like summer again!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut the corn kernels from the ears, while bringing a pot of water to a boil.
    2. 2
      When the water comes to a boil, add the corn kernels and blanch for about 1 minute. Remove them with a strainer and set aside.
    3. 3
      Let the water return to a boil and season generously with salt. Add the beans and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain the beans and flush with cold water until they are cool.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, put the onion slices in a bowl of ice water, which will crips them and mellow their flavor.
    5. 5
      Using either a mortar and pestel or the flat side of a chef's knife, mash the garlic to a paste with a pinch of salt.
    6. 6
      Add the paste to a small bowl (or leave it in the mortar) and whisk in the vinegar and let sit for 10 minutes. Add the olive oil and whisk again.
    7. 7
      Just before serving, drain the onions. Put the beans, corn, onions, tomatoes, and basil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and then toss with the vinaigrette. Season further if required. Serve right away.
