Weekend Recipe -No butter Corn Topper

The sweet corn is reaching the end of the season, but finally we've had some rain so the corn is a bit sweeter than it was earlier this summer.  Now I love an ear of corn slathered in butter, but I also recognize that does not always enhance the flavor of the corn, it can mask it.

I have explained how to make herbal butters int eh past, so I thought this time i would share how to make an vinaigrette corn topper with fresh herbs so you can enjoy several harvest time flavors.

Lemon-Basil Vinaigrette Corn Topper

1 Tbls. lemon juice
2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp. freshly minced basil leaves
salt and pepper to taste

Whisk lemon juice, oil and basil in a small bowl.  Season with salt and pepper.  Brush over hot corn just before eating.
