We love a summer meal of fresh corn on the cob and chilled sliced tomatoes so I felt pretty certain that we'd like this any time of the year and we did. I used Birds Eye frozen baby gold and white corn and when combined with multi-colored grape tomatoes this quick salad not only tasted good but it looked good! Simple ingredients for a simple salad with great results. Read More

Great! It's definitely a keeper recipe. I did make one major change I used canned corn because I already had it. One can is 1-1/2 cups so if you make this change you will either have a more acidic salad or you can add a second can if you want the corn to be center stage. I went with the first cause I absolutely love tomatoes. I did not reduce anything else but next time I will likely reduce or skip the apple cider vinegar since it's already so acidic. This is a great basic dish and you can go through your fridge/freezer/pantry and add more to change it up or use up other items you have on hand. This would be great as a bread topping as well.

I made this salad with frozen corn purchased basil and homegrown tomatoes. I enjoyed this salad but next time will add finely sliced scallions or just a bit of finely diced red onion...and maybe use a milder vinegar. I ate this salad as my 'carb' with a bacon-wrapped turkey tenderloin...delicious complement! Read More

This was a nice side salad but a little plain tasting. I ended up adding some green onion. Next time I might use canned corn instead of frozen. Read More
