Ingredients

  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ head of radicchio, sliced into ½-inch strips
  • Olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 2 ears fresh corn, kernels removed
  • Salt, to taste
  • 4-5 leaves fresh basil, chiffonade

Directions

Combine the red onion and radicchio in a pan over medium-low heat and sauté with a drizzle of olive oil for about 5 minutes. Once the ingredients have cooked and softened slightly, add in the red wine and sherry vinegars. Sitr to combine and cook for 2-3 minutes, and then remove from heat and add to a medium-sized serving bowl.

Next, take the raw corn (I remove the kernels by running down the ear of corn with a chef's knife) and add it to the serving bowl with the other ingredients. Toss again and season with salt to taste. To serve, garnish with fresh basil.
