With summer finally here I thought I would share this great salad recipe for your picnics! It is delicious, I couldn't keep my fork out of the serving dish:)
Green Bean and Corn Salad with Tomato-Tarragon Vinaigrette
Prep 15 minutes plus 30 minutes standing time
Cook about 15 minutesServes 6
1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half
1 cup fresh corn kernels
2 tbsp. white-wine vinegar
2 tsp. olive oil
2 tsp. fat-free mayonnaise
2 tsp. water
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1 beefsteak tomato, diced
1 large shallot, minced
3 tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon
3 tbsp. chopped fresh chives
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the green beans and return to a boil. Cook 2 minutes. Add the corn and cook until the green beans and corn are crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Rinse the vegetables under cold running water; drain well.
Combine the vinegar, oil, mayonnaise, water, pepper, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the tomato, shallot, tarragon, and chives. Add the green beans and corn; mix well. Let stand at room temperature about 30 minutes before serving to blend the flavors.

Good Idea If you make this salad when corn and beefsteak tomatoes are not in season, use 3 plum tomatoes and 1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed and skip cooking the corn in step 1

No one in my house is on Weight Watchers, but my hubby is always trying to lose weight so when I saw this at a thrift store I picked it up. I like the layout of the page and the gorgeous pics with each recipe. I did not have tarragon in the house and just omitted that ingredient. It was delicious! Of course these recipes don't help hubby lose weight because he has 3 helpings:) But who could eat just one cup, really! I will have to fix his plate and hide the rest I guess!
