I saw a large bin of corn on the cob at Wegman's today & looked up this recipe that we enjoy during corn season:

Roasted Corn on the Cob and Red Potato Salad

1-1/2 lbs small red potatoes, halved
4 ears fresh corn, shucked & cut into thirds
2 Tbsps olive oil
Sea salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
10 fresh basil leaves, cut into strips (chiffonade)
Pepper Vinaigrette (recipe below)

Preheat oven to 450. Toss potatoes & corn with oil & spread in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle evenly with sea salt & pepper; roast at 450 for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender and golden brown.

Sprinkle potatoes and corn with basil, and toss with Pepper Vinaigrette in a large bowl. Season with additional salt & pepper, if desired. Serve warm or at room temperature. 6 servings.

Pepper Vinaigrette

2 T minced red or yellow bell pepper
1 T chopped fresh chives
1 T chopped fresh basil
2 tsps Dijon mustard
tsp sugar
tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 T white wine vinegar
cup olive oil

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl & whisk until well blended. Makes about 1/3 cup.

This sounds sooooo good! But I can't have it - wah. I'm watching carbs and those are both bad for me right now. Putting this procedure aside and keeping it for later in the summer!

RE: RECIPE: Roasted Corn on the Cob & Red Potato Salad

That sounds like a perfect summer recipe. I have been gifted with 2 of Sara Foster's cookbooks and am feeling very guilty that I haven't made anything yet - I've gotten so many good recipes here that I never really sit down and look through the book! Thanks, Ann.
