Lately, I’ve been filling up my tote bag with all the tomatoes, basil and corn I can get my hands on. Hence, this corn and tomato salad on repeat. I never intended to share this recipe on the blog but as I made it week after week, I decided it was too delicious and easy not to share!August is the time of the summer when there is no shortage of fresh corn and tomatoes so now is the perfect time to try this recipe. We’ve been serving up this salad with BBQ chicken, fish, burgers, you name it. We’ve even packed it in mason jars for picnic or beach lunches. In the summer especially, I gravitate towards easy, no-bake, recipes, because, helloooo it’s hot outside. Especially lately in Boston. Wooof. I can’t handle temps in the mid to upper 90s. It’s been challenging on my concussion recovery too because earlier in the summer I really enjoyed spending time outside and going for walks during the day and I’ve been feeling a little trapped lately. If anyone has ideas for restful activities to do indoors, I’m all ears!

This salad is easy to grocery shop for because…six ingredients. Here they are. Ready. Set. Go.

  1. Corn
  2. Tomatoes
  3. Basil
  4. Feta Cheese
  5. White wine vinegar
  6. Olive oil

And I bet you already have a couple of those in your pantry. Easy. Peasy.I just love all the different textures in this salad – the crunchy corn, the juicy tomatoes and the creamy feta. And the white wine vinegar, olive oil, and a shake of salt and pepper simply brighten the flavors of the sweet corn, savory umami tomatoes and salty feta.

Serve this up at your next summer cookout or add it to the menu for your labor day weekend grill!

    Kara,
    This salad is delicious. Thank you.
    To pass some time, buy 18-inch “fat quarter squares used for quilt-making. Iron a double-fold narrow hem on all sides; of course, 2 sides will overlap the other two. Stitch by hand or machine. (You could learn to make mitered corners, but this is not necessary.)
    Make the napkins part of your pictures; and enjoy them on picnics and at home.
    I am a 77-year old grandmother, who enjoys your healthy attitudes and cooking. Hope your recover completely soon.
