1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

2 cups fresh corn kernels

One 10-ounce bag frozen lima beans, thawed

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted

1 large shallot, minced

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 1/2 cups loosely packed basil leaves


  1. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Mix the tomatoes, corn, lima beans, butter and shallot together in a medium bowl. Season with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Tear off four 12- by 18-inch pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil. Put 1/4 cup of the basil leaves in the center of each piece of foil. Evenly divide the vegetable mixture (about 1 1/4 cup each) over the basil. Carefully fold each foil piece into a packet, bringing up the sides and double folding the top and ends to seal.
  4. Grill the packets until the tomatoes begin to soften, about 12 minutes. Chop the remaining 1/2 cup basil. Place a packet on each plate, carefully open the foil and serve sprinkled with chopped basil.
