Corn & Tomato Salad

This Corn and Tomato Salad is going to be your go-to corn salad for summertime, I promise!

Corn & Tomato Salad

This is one of my favorite summer salads.  Fresh corn, tomatoes, red onions and herbs come together to create this flavorful salad that is perfect to accompany dinner or to take to a gathering as a side dish.

You could probably get away with using canned or frozen corn, but I think fresh corn (I cut it off of the cob) is the secret to this salad tasting so good.

    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!

      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! :-)
