Perfect for the whole family this summertime meal can be cooked outside on the grill. Use your side burner to sauté up the bacon and corn and you are sure to have the neighbours rush over to see what’s for dinner.

2 tbsp (25 mL) red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) dried Italian seasoning

In a shallow dish, whisk together oil, vinegar, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper. Add scallopine and toss to coat evenly.

Place cobs of corn on grill over medium high heat; grill for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Set aside.

Add scallopine onto grill and grill turning once for about 8 minutes or until no longer pink inside.

In a nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat and cook bacon, stirring for 5 minutes or until crisp.

Cut kernels from corncobs and add to skillet. Cook for 3 minutes or until warmed through.

Remove from heat and stir in basil. Serve with scallopine.
