  • 3 tomatoes
  • 3 cups corn fresh, grilled, or frozen
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • If using fresh corn, blanch the 3 cups of corn for 1 minute or grill the corn. If using frozen corn, thaw out corn, but do not heat it.
  • Chop 3 tomatoes, ½ cup basil, and 1 onion.
  • Mix together ¼ cup olive oil, 2 tbs white wine vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Add dressing to salad and mix.
  • You can serve immediately, but it is best to refrigerate 1 hour or more for optimal flavoring and then serve.

Notes

Note: This recipe is best with fresh corn, but you can use frozen corn also. I would not recommend  the canned stuff.
