  • 1 tsp (5 mL) dry mustard or Dijon mustard
  • Pinch of granulated sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Step 1

1 Heat half of the oil in a skillet over low heat. Add garlic and thyme and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant but not brown. Spoon half into a heatproof bowl. Set skillet with remaining garlic mixture aside.

2 Add remaining oil, vinegar, mustard and sugar to garlic mixture in bowl and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

3 Just before serving, return skillet to medium- high heat and heat until sizzling. Add mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Sauté for about 5 minutes or until liquid is released and mushrooms start to brown. Add corn and sauté for 2 minutes or until hot and golden brown. Stir in tomatoes and remove from heat.

4 Whisk basil into vinaigrette and toss half with lettuce in a large bowl. Arrange lettuce on serving plates, top with warm vegetables and drizzle with remaining vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper.
