A Taste of Summer

I came across this recipe for corn pudding and scallops in an old Food and Wine magazine I was flipping through a couple weeks ago. Corn is synonymous with summer. You can get anything pretty much year round these days, but the corn is just so much sweeter at this time of the year. It really makes the dish. The sweetness of the corn also goes really well with scallops, another great summer food. Here, they are seared and topped with a basil-anchovy sauce. I also made a side salad of arugula, hearts of palm, and olives dressed with lemon juice, olive oil, and salt. This is a simple salad that I have been making a lot recently.
