My friend gave me this recipe and I tweaked it a bit to my liking, but it is definitely one of my favorite side dishes!!


6 Cups of corn ( Fresh is best, if not I’ve used frozen white corn or sweet corn)

1/2 red onion chopped

Juice of 1/2 a squeezed lime + zest

2 TBS olive oil

1 TBS agave

1 Tsp salt

5-7 basil leaves julienned

pinch of red pepper flakes ( optional)

Mix all ingredients together. Add basil last. Increase lime juice if desired and serve either hot or cold! If serving hot add 1 TBS butter once corn is warmed before adding other ingredients. If serving cold chill in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.

Pesto Green Beans


These green beans are one of my favorite side dishes to make!


8 cups of green beans cooked ( if not fresh I use the organic frozen french style green beans )

1/2 a cup of pine nuts

4 cloves of garlic

2 Cups of fresh basil

1/ 4cup olive oil

Salt to taste


Cook green beans until cooked but still crunchy and bright green. While cooking make the pesto.

Toast pine nuts in skillet over medium heat until browned.

In a food processor add pine nuts, basil, garlic, & salt. Process the ingredients until everything is chopped.

Slowly add olive oil until it is all mixed. ( This is less olive oil than or a standard past pesto sauce) You don’t want it to get too mushy. Almost more crumbly.

Once green beans are cooked mix in dish with the pesto mixture. Salt everything taste once again and serve!!
