Corn and Tomato Salad made with fresh corn on the cob and garden cherry tomatoes tossed with aged balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.
Fall is officially here and the summer vegetable crops are starting to come to an end for most of us here in the northeast, making way for fields of pumpkins, gourds and cornstalks.
Here is a simple salad to use up the last of your harvest that tastes best with fresh corn on the cob. If it's off-season, you can also use the frozen, defrosted corn kernels.
Tomatoes are a good source of vitamins such as A, C, K, Folate and Potassium and are low in sodium, cholesterol and calories. One serving (or 1 cup) of tomatoes has 2 grams of fiber and the water content is high so tomatoes are a great food to eat to help fill you up.
How do you make Corn and Tomato Salad?
For this recipe you'll need corn on the cob, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, EVOO, aged balsamic vinegar, Kosher salt and black pepper.
