This cherry tomato-corn salad holds up well for summer picnics. Simply cut the raw corn from the cob -- no need to even cook it. Raisins are a surprise sweet addition.

Loved It! Made exactly as directed. Used fresh basil corn etc. Everything as directed. Stop fooling around with this recipe you guys - it's great the way it is. I served it was grilled apple-chiken sausages I buy at Trader Joes. Fantastic! If you make it the way it's written you'll love it too. Read More

I made as directed and although I agree that the raisins are surprisingly good in here the other flavors did not seem to mesh well. Interesting recipe - at first I couldn't decide whether I liked it or not. I've decided I would not make this again. Read More

Pretty good. Made some changes though. Omitted the sour cream. Used olive oil balsamic and red wine vinegar mixed (ran out of balsamic) about 1-2 TBS mayo 1 TBS minced garlic dried parsley and finally 1 finely minced jalapeno. Read More

This was a wonderful fresh addition to our summer meal. I would omit the raisins next time (just didn't seem to work with the other flavors) but loved everything else. Easy to make and delish! Read More

This was a sweet surprise! I thought it sounded odd but what to do with all those cherry tomatoes? So I made it and it was really good! Yes I was a little worried about the raisins but we loved them so much I might add more next time! Very refreshing on a hot day and a great add to a summer cook out!! Read More

I selected this recipe because I had some grape tomatoes I needed to use. Didn't have fresh corn but I defrosted some frozen kernels under running water. Didn't have enough fresh basil either so added some dry into the dressing and then lots of chopped fresh parsley in the salad. Would I make this again? I think so but I'd definitely make it at least a couple of hours ahead of time instead of putting it together at the last minute and I would omit the raisins. Read More

I loved this recipe. I made a few changes - I used fat free sour cream and lowfat mayo just to reduce the calories but it was delicious. Read More
