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!
- 2 fresh ears of corn, shucked
- 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 medium tomato, deseeded and chopped
- 1 shallot, chopped
- 2 basil leaves, chopped
- 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
Cut the kernels off of the cob. Toss in a large bowl with the bell pepper, tomato and shallot.
Drizzle the vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper over top. Toss to combine. Add the chopped basil leaves just before serving.
