As the holiday season is upon us again, this recipe below may very well put you in the mood.  

Active: 35 minutes Total: 35 minutes

Cooking bivalves like clams is pretty foolproof because they tell you when they’re done—you’ll know they’re ready once they open. Discard any that stay closed.

4 ears corn, husked

1 red bell pepper, quartered, seeds removed

1 15-ounce can low-sodium white beans, rinsed

½ cup finely chopped celery

½ cup chopped scallions

½ cup cider vinegar

2 tablespoons honey

4 pounds littleneck clams, scrubbed (see Tip)

1.Preheat grill to high.

2. Oil the grill rack. Grill corn and bell pepper, flipping occasionally, until tender and slightly charred, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a clean cutting board and let cool for 5 minutes. Cut kernels from the cobs and chop the peppers. Transfer to a medium bowl and add beans, celery, and scallions.

3. Bring vinegar and honey to a simmer in a small saucepan. Pour the mixture over the vegetables and toss to combine. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, grill clams, without turning, until they open, about 8 minutes. Serve the clams with the corn-and-pepper relish.
