Category : Healthy Eating

This recipe uses  late summer produce (which we are still getting plenty of in September!!)Corn Tomato Salad including corn, tomatoes and basil. This a colorful and tasty side dish…perfect to bring as a “dish-to-pass” next time you head to a cookout! Thanks to Carla N. for the suggestion…we looked up “corn tomato recipes” online and started with a recipe, however, as usual Ryan did make some changes….hope you enjoy this!


3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

1 tsp.  salt (original recipe called for 2 tsp…that’s alot!)

Freshly black pepper

1/4 cup  olive oil

6 ears fresh corn, husked (about 4 cups corn kernels)

2 cups red or orange grape tomatoes, halved

1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced

8 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into small cubes

1 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves, chopped (Ryan actually added 2Tbsp. of pesto instead!)

Whisk the vinegar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream, to make a smooth dressing.

Shear off the corn kernels with a sharp knife over a bowl. Toss in the tomatoes, scallions, and mozzarella. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and toss to coat. Cover and let set for 15 minutes or up to 2 hours. Before serving chop the basil and stir it into the salad.
