Fresh Corn Salad

Pin It

This past weekend, I went to the Farmer's Market for the first time all season. Shame on me, I know. They had a wide selection of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, bread and herbs, and everything looked amazing. One of my favorite things that we bought was a delicious focaccia bread that was topped with tomatoes, spinach and onions. I'm definitely going to try to recreate that one of these days. I was also quick to purchase a selection of fruits and vegetables that filled up the fridge.

Last night I decided to use the fresh corn, tomatoes and basil I bought to create some sort of salad. I think fresh basil is one if the best smelling things and it always spruces up a dish, so I knew I wanted to incorporate it. I did a few Google searches to get an idea of what to dress the salad with, but decided on a basic dressing of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper. This salad was very refreshing and had great flavor! I think the basil really added a lot to it as well. Plus it was a great way to round up the end of summer. You could probably even use this as a dip/salsa if you wanted to. Enjoy!
