Fresh Grilled Corn and Tomato Salad

Welcome to the first Tuesday in May and a whole new recipe series! In case you aren’t familiar with our monthly series, Parrish from Life with the Crust Cut Off and I bring you a new series themed recipe each week for the month. This month we are focusing on grilling recipes! I hope by now you are getting warmer weather and being able to enjoy the outdoors! Here in Florida I have already been grilling for a couple months and I have been dying to showcase some more grilling recipes for you all! Today I have for you a super fresh corn and tomato salad.

Grilled corn on the cob mixed with ripe grape tomatoes tossed in a light fresh basil vinaigrette, you can serve it warm or cold but the longer it sits the better!

I personally like it better cold, so make sure you grill the corn ahead of time and make the salad a few hours in advance before serving it chilled!

Ingredients
  • 6 ears of corn
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 8 basil leaves, julienne
  • ½ tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbls olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Remove out husk and silks from corn. Grill on oiled grill gates over medium high heat. You are looking to get the outside slightly charred, about 10 minutes rotating every few minutes. Take corn off the grill and set aside.
  2. Slice grape tomatoes in half and add to a large bowl.
  3. When the corn is cool enough to be handled, cut the kernels off the cob and place in the bowl with the tomatoes.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients for the vinaigrette. Pour vinaigrette over the corn and tomato mixture.
  5. Place in fridge a few hours in advance until ready to serve or serve immediately if you prefer it warm. Enjoy!

    This looks awesome but apartment living means I don’t have a grill. Is there another way to prepare the corn?

      Sure! Cut it off the cob first, then toss it in a tablespoon of olive oil. Turn on the broiler in your oven and cook until just golden, like the pictures on the grill, then continue the recipe as written!

    This looks delicious! I have made a similar side dish with feta in addition to the corn and tomatoes, but have not tried making my own basis vinaigrette. I can’t wait to try it!

    I am probably the only one in my family who will eat this since I am the only one who loves tomatoes so I am going to make this one all for myself. 🙂 It looks delicious and just in time for some great summer recipe ideas. I can see myself sitting by the pool with this already.

    I’m practically drooling this looks and sounds so blasted good. Can hardly wait to make this. We get pretty tired of same things time after time so finding a nice inexpensive, easy, quick recipe is heaven for us. I’ll most likely just eat the salad for my dinner. Sure glad you shared this. Happy weekend
