Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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).

  • 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.

  • 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.
