Summer screams bbq and meat smokers. So we tapped the good ole folks at Ridgewood NJ's Smoked Restaurant for their best summer side. With Jersey corn and tomatoes ripening in August, you'll have this easy-to-prepare recipe on repeat.
Chef Robert @ SMOKED offered the following simple recipe for a seasonal salad that is fresh & delish! This salad is a healthy, flavorful accompaniment to grilled foods from traditional hamburgers & hot dogs to steak & chops.
White Bean & Fresh Corn Salad
6 Corn - shucked & kernels cut off husk
1 Can Cannellini Beans- drained & rinsed
