Roasted Corn,Tomatoes and Basil Summer Salad

These fresh, flavorful side dishes from Steve Bate, executive director of the Long island Wine Council and Monica Harbes of Harbes Family Farm in Mattituck, Jamesport and Riverhead highlight the delicious herbs, cheese and produce found locally on the North and South Fork, and offer a crisp accompaniment to the rich fish and duck mains.

Harbes’ refreshing salad stars the lauded Harbes sweet corn and the rich goat feta from Catapano Dairy Farm in Peconic. Harbes also recently released an estate-grown Merlot, Chardonnay and Rosé. -Susan Kostzrewa
