Corn and Tomato Salad – Must Try it

Corn and Tomato Salad is a delightful dish that combines the sweet crunch of corn with the juicy freshness of tomatoes. It’s a colorful and tasty salad that’s perfect for summer or anytime you want a burst of flavor. 

In this salad, you’ll find vibrant yellow or golden corn kernels mixed with bright red and juicy tomatoes. The salad is usually dressed with a zesty vinaigrette.

Corn and Tomato Salad is not just delicious; it’s also a visual treat with its colorful medley of ingredients. It’s often served as a side dish at picnics, barbecues, or family gatherings. However, it’s so tasty that it can sometimes steal the spotlight and become the star of the meal. 

Whether you enjoy it on its own or as a side, Corn and Tomato Salad is a simple yet delightful way to savor the flavors of summer.

Ingredients:

For the Salad:

  • 2 cups of corn (you can use frozen corn and thaw it, or canned corn, just make sure to drain it)
  • ¾ cup of cherry tomatoes, cut into small pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • ¼ cup of diced onion (you can use yellow, sweet, or red onion)
  • Optional: ⅓ cup of basil, cut into long, thin strips (we call these ribbons)

For the Lime Vinaigrette:

  • Juice and zest of 1 large lime (that’s about 2 tablespoons of lime juice)
  • 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard (it’s a kind of fancy mustard, but it’s super tasty!)
  • 1 teaspoon of maple syrup (this adds a tiny bit of sweetness)
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt (just a little pinch)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil (this makes the dressing smooth and yummy)
