The Good News Brian Bistrong's refreshing salad is a play on the one he learned from his mentor David Bouley. The shrimp bumps up the protein virtually without adding any fat, while the watercress is a great source of vitamin C.

  1. 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 6 ears of corn, kernels cut from the cob (2 1/2 cups)
  3. 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  4. 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
  5. 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  6. 1 tablespoon snipped chives
  7. 1 1/2 teaspoons coarsely chopped tarragon
  8. 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  10. 1 pound shelled and deveined large shrimp
  11. 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  12. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  13. 1 bunch watercress, thick stems discarded
  1. Light a grill. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Add the corn kernels and cook over high heat, stirring, until they are softened, about 4 minutes. Transfer the corn to a bowl and let cool. Add the tomatoes, onion, parsley, chives, tarragon, vinegar and 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season the corn salad with salt and pepper.
  2. In a bowl, toss the shrimp with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the shrimp over high heat, turning once, until pink and curled, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the lemon zest.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, stir the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil with the lemon juice and season generously with salt and pepper. Add the watercress and toss in the dressing to coat. Transfer the watercress to a large serving platter. Top with the corn and tomato salad and the grilled shrimp and serve right away.
