This refreshing side salad takes advantage of the summer harvest, whether from your own garden or from the farmers market. It's the perfect light addition to a rich barbecue plate. It's also portable, so it makes a great picnic dish.


  • 2 quarts water
  • 3 medium ripe tomatoes
  • 4 ears fresh sweet corn, husks removed
  • 1 lb. shelled baby lima beans
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. Cherry Creek Seafood Seasoning
  • 3/4 tsp. Garlic Salt
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 small bunch basil, chopped


Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Gently slice a small X shape at the bottom of each tomato. Drop tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds then remove with a slotted spoon to a colander and run under cold water to stop cooking; set aside. Keep the water boiling and add corn. Cook corn for 2 min. then remove with tongs to a colander and run under cold water to stop cooking; set aside. Add lima beans to boiling water and cook until tender, about 15 min. Meanwhile, peel, seed, and dice tomatoes; start peeling from the X and skin should come off easily. Cut corn kernels off of the cobs. Add tomatoes, corn, and lima beans to a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk oil, lemon juice, Dijon, garlic salt, and Cherry Creek seasoning. Fold dressing into veggies. Add salt & pepper to taste. Fold in basil just before serving.

"I just used your Cambridgeshire Celery Seasoning to make the best Green Bean casserole EVER, and it was super easy! I have MAJOR food allergies (even down to the preservatives in regular mayonnaise) and this avoided all my problems while tasting better than any I can even remember! The Cambridgeshire Celery Seasoning made all the difference!"
