Summer Corn Salad

By: Meet Your Vegetables Interns

Serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 4 ears of sweet corn, raw
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • ​1⁄4 cup diced red onion
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped basil
  • 3 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 1⁄2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1⁄2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper

Method

To remove corn from the cob: Stand corn upright and use a sharp knife to carefully cut off kernels. Compost the cobs and place kernels in a medium bowl with the tomatoes, onions, basil and cheese. Toss until well-combined.

In a small bowl or sealed mason jar, whisk or shake together remaining ingredients. Pour over vegetables and toss until well-coated. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if desired.
