When my friend and I decided to cook dinner in one night a few weeks ago we decided on trying out a recipe for chickpea burgers. I thought a little summer salad would be a good side, so I came up with this mixture of ingredients to highlight some of the fresh basil from my porch! It was a great refreshing salad to put together but it's best served soon after you make it - so don't make too far in advance.
1/2 TB white wine vinegar
1 TB olive oil
salt and pepper
1 ear of corn (cut off, not cooked)
1/2 tsp chopped garlic
2 TB green pepper, chopped
lots of fresh basil!
We used a recipe from Eating Well: http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chickpea_burgers _tahini_sauce.html
Rather than making tahini ourselves we bought the premade Tahini that Trader Joe's makes - and it was perfect! Would definitely recommend it.
