  • 6 ears yellow corn, shucked
  • 2 bunches asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 small red onion, diced small
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground


Fill a large stock pot with water, salt and bring it to a boil. Place shucked corn in boiling water and blanch the corn for 3 minutes until bright yellow. Then toss the corn into an ice bath. In the same water used for blanching the corn, blanch the asparagus for 1 minute and toss into the ice bath. For the corn, once cooled, remove the kernels off the cob with a sharp knife and cut the asparagus into 1-inch angled sections. Place both the corn and then asparagus into a medium size bowl.


In another medium size bowl, mix together sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper. Drizzle over corn and asparagus. Mix together well and chill or serve at room temperature.

the recipe does not tell you when to add the basil and onion?? I assume its when the other ingredients are added together?
