This is the perfect summer recipe! It is one of the best salads to make when the corn is really fresh. The easiest way to cook the corn is in the microwave. Cut off one end, microwave for 4 minutes, remove with hot pad – shake the corn out of the husk. (Tip: All of the silks should remain in the husk while cooking and you have perfectly cooked corn.) Even though the basil will get a little dark, this salad gets better the next day!Summer Green Bean Salad
