6 ears sweet corn, cleaned

2 cups fresh or frozen baby lima beans

3-4 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

2 pints multi-colored cherry tomatoes, halved

1/4 cup green onion, thinly sliced {optional}

2 Tbsp. flat-leaf Italian parsley, chopped

2 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped

2 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped

Zest and juice of small lime

1 tsp. coarse salt

1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Place ears of corn on hot grill and cook 10-15 minutes, until corn is slightly charred and kernels are tender. Toss lima beans in one tablespoon olive oil and place in a grill basket and cook 4-5 minutes, until the beans are slightly crispy. Remove corn and beans from the grill and allow to completely cool. In the meantime combine cherry tomatoes, green onion, herbs and lime zest and juice in a large bowl. Add lima beans. Slice corn kernels off the cobs and add to the bowl. Toss together with remaining olive oil, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary.


Serve as a side dish, salsa or on top of fish, chicken or shrimp.
