Corn & Tomato Salad

This Corn and Tomato Salad is going to be your go-to corn salad for summertime, I promise!  But first I need to apologize for my absence of posts for a little while… but I have a pretty darn good excuse.


Corn & Tomato Salad

Yep.  We planned a last-minute, surprise backyard wedding.  Simple, sweet and to the point.  All of our friends and family thought they were coming to a big ‘ole cookout with a band and fireworks.

Taylor’s love for cooking and enjoying food reeled me in instantly.  The fact that we get along so well helps a little, too.  :-)

I adore him.

And I adore this simple and delicious Corn and Tomato Salad… but not as much as I do Taylor.

This salad is chock full of “good for you” stuff:  Fresh corn, tomatoes, red onion, fresh herbs and seasonings.  A PERFECT side dish for your outdoor Memorial Day cookout this weekend!

    Aww, congratulations! I’ve always wanted to be invited to a cookout that turns into a wedding. I bet I would bawl like a baby!

    I am SO excited for fresh corn and I’m definitely going to be making this soon!

      Thank you so much, Amanda! The pastor was serious but yet so comical in the short ceremony. My mom said she had never cried and laughed at the same time during a wedding! :-)
