Corn & Zucchini Salad with Feta



  • 4 ears of corn, husked
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 small zucchini (about 1 1/2 pounds), thinly sliced lengthwise on a mandoline
  • 8-10 zucchini blossoms, torn into large pieces (optional)
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces feta, crumbled (about 1 cup)


Cook corn in a large pot of boiling salted water until bright yellow and tender, about 3 minutes; transfer to a plate and let cool.

Cut kernels from cobs and place in a large bowl. Add zucchini, zucchini blossoms (if using), basil, parsley, oil, vinegar, and red pepper flakes and toss to combine; season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with feta.

Do ahead: Corn can be cooked 1 day ahead. Cut kernels from cobs; cover and chill. Bring to room temperature before using. Serves 8.

  • 9-inch square puff pastry (half of a 17.3-oz. package) 
  • 2 tablespoons apricot jam 
  • 1 pound (2 or 3) pluots, rinsed and cut into thin wedges 
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten 
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar


Lay puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Cut square in half to make two rectangles; save one for another use. With a floured rolling pin, roll out one rectangle to 7 by 14 inches. Transfer to a buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheet.

Brush all but a 1-inch border of dough with the apricot jam. Lay two rows of overlapping pluot wedges over jam. Brush edges of dough with egg and fold, pinching corners to seal. Brush edges of tart with egg. Sprinkle fruit with sugar. 

Bake in a 375° oven until pastry is browned and pluots are tender when pierced, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
