Fresh corn and tomato salad

Da Vinci said “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Keep that in mind as you quickly toss together raw sweet corn from three ears, a cup of chopped super ripe tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, a half cup of minced red onion, a tablespoon of olive oil and a tablespoon or more of lemon juice.

Seriously, don’t let the summer end before trying this. Enough said.

This is my entry for September’s “No Croutons Required” event, hosted this month by the blog Food and Spice. The theme this month is corn!

    I love the quote!! and the salad looks amazing as well.

  • This looks great! I just posted a squash pancake recipe with corn salad and your salad would be wonderful in the dish.

  • Beautiful looking tomatoes!

  • Having just purchased a similar pint of tomatoes at the farmer’s market this morning. I now know what I’ll make with them. Thanks so much for sharing.

  • Beautiful photos. Looks so fresh & delicious!!

    Hmmm….I’ll try it, although I have never eaten raw corn before.

  • Oh my gosh, this look delicious! And so beautiful! Your photographs are gorgeous.
    I’ve recently launched my own blog, I’d love for you to check it out and let me know what you think :)

    It’s amazing how many different versions of this dish I’ve seen; everyone has their own take on how to use the summer’s best crops.

    Lemon juice is a great idea . . . I usually use red-wine or apple-cider vinegar to give it a little kick (balsamic is just too powerful). Either way, get cooking soon before the corn & tomatoes disappear again!
