  • 2 cups Sweet Corn
  • 1 carton Grape Tomatoes (Halved)
  • 2 tablespoons Garlic (Finely Chopped)
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Basil (Roughly Chopped)
  • 2 cups Fresh Mozzarella (Pearl size balls)
  • 4 tablespoons Tuscan Herb Olive Oil (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 2 tablespoons 18 Year Aged Italian Balsamic (12 Year Aged Balsamic works great too but more tart) (EVOO Marketplace)
  • dash Sea Salt (EVOO Marketplace)
  • dash Black Pepper


Step 1
Add 2 tablespoons Tuscan Herb Olive Oil into a medium sized saute pan. Heat over medium-high until oil begins to shimmer. Add sweet corn and saute 3-5 minutes. Add garlic and basil and saute an additional 1-2 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons aged balsamic and reduce for an additional 1-2 minutes. During this step the aged balsamic will caramelize onto the sweet corn. Place caramelized corn & garlic mixture in refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour to cool.
Step 2
After caramelized sweet corn, basil and garlic have cooled fold in halved grape tomatoes and fresh mozzarella balls. Drizzle salad with remaining 2 tablespoons Tuscan Herb Olive Oil. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
