Ingredients
  • 8   
    fresh ears of corn
  • 12   ounces 
    fresh haricots verts or green beans, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3   tablespoons 
    cider vinegar
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    freshly ground black pepper
  • 3   tablespoons 
    olive oil
  • 1/3  cup 
    finely chopped red onion
  • 2   tablespoons 
    snipped fresh parsley
Directions
1.
Remove husks and silks from corn. In a covered 4-quart Dutch oven, cook corn in enough boiling lightly salted water to cover for 5 to 7 minutes or until tender; drain. When corn is cool enough to handle, cut kernels from cobs (you should have about 4 cups corn kernels).
2.
Meanwhile, in a covered medium saucepan, cook beans in a small amount of boiling salted water for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain; rinse under cold water. Drain again.
3.
In a large bowl, combine cider vinegar, salt, and pepper; whisk in oil. Add corn, beans, onion, and parsley; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill for up to 4 hours. Makes 8 (3/4-cup) servings.
