Ingredients
  • Chilled Sweet Corn Broth:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped white onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 4 ears fresh corn, kernels removed (about 2 cups kernels)
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Crab and Avocado Salad, recipe follows
  • Chopped fresh chives, for garnish
  • Freshly ground white pepper, for garnish
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for garnish
Directions

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and saute for 5 minutes. Stir in the corn, thyme, and water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the thyme sprigs. Remove the soup in batches to a blender and puree until smooth. Strain the soup through a fine sieve. Season with salt and white pepper. Add slightly more salt than needed to compensate for the cold serving temperature. Cover and chill for 3 hours or longer. Divide the Crab and Avocado Salad between 6 chilled bowls. Arrange the salad in a ring in each bowl. Spoon the soup into the center. Garnish with chopped fresh chives, freshly ground white pepper and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.
