This is the perfect take along to a backyard gathering. Fresh corn and sweet basil make the perfect healthy side.
Yield: Serves 4
4 ears fresh sweet corn (white, yellow or combination)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
Heat oven to 400°F. Remove husks and silks from ears of corn. Drizzle corn with 1 tablespoon olive oil; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until crisp-tender.
Cool until safe enough to handle. Cut corn kernels from cobs into large bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well.
Cover and refrigerate salad until ready to serve.
