Basil and Feta Corn on the Cob

One of my favorite foods of summer is fresh, sweet corn on the cob.

But it's about this time of the year that corn on the cob gets a little, well, to use a term my mother uses, "pedestrian."  Here's a great way to jazz up your corn on the cob without much effort at all!

This recipe is a twist on pesto, but when I created it I happened to have feta and used it instead.  I also opted to use olive oil instead of butter...because it is still swimsuit season!

Basil and Feta Corn on the Cob

1 cup fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2-3 tablespoons water
1-2 tablespoons rice or apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons feta cheese
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 ears of corn on the cob

Bring a large stock pot of water to a boil.  Husk and clean the corn.  Boil the corn for approximately 10 minutes.  Remove from the water.

Meanwhile, place all ingredients in a food processor, using the lower amounts of water and vinegar.  Process until the basil is chopped fine. 

Scape the sides of the food processor and process again.  Taste and add more water or vinegar to taste.

Process until smooth.

Drizzle approximately 1 tablespoon per corn cob.

Makes 8 whole ears of corn, or 16 half-ears.

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
