Green Bean, Cherry Tomato, and Grilled Corn Salad

I wasn't grilling so I cut the corn off the cob and "mock" grilled in a non stick saute pan to gently brown the kernels. It worked perfectly!

1 1/2 Lbs green beans

3 ears of corn, husked
1 T plus 1/2 C olive oil

1 1/2 C cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 C packed thinly sliced fresh basil
1 large shallot, chopped
3 T white wine vinegar

Cook green beans in a large pot of boiling salted water until just crisp tender, about 4 minutes. Drain; rinse with cold water and drain again. Pat dry.

Prepare barbecue, (medium heat). Brush corn with 1 T oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until browned in spots, tuning occasionally, about 10 minutes. Cool corn.

Cut kernels off cobs (generous 2 cups). Place kernels in a large bowl. Add beans and tomatoes. Mix basil, shallot and vinegar in medium bowl. Gradually whisk in 1/2 C oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add dressing to salad and toss.

*I am thinking that some crumbled feta would be a nice addition to this tasty summer salad.
