  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Salad:
  • 3 or 4 ears fresh sweet corn, shucked

Directions

For the dressing: In an old jam jar, combine the olive oil, vinegar, Dijon, honey and some salt and pepper. Mix until emulsified, then check for seasoning and balance of flavors.

For the salad: Grill the corn until blistered and golden. Allow to cool for a few minutes, and then slice off the kernels.
