Confession time: We were invited out for lunch on Saturday and my hostess told me "Bring a salad". This was the salad I brought. It was such a hit, I took all the credit myself! But Kisha, I give you credit here, this salad is wonderful. Another confession, I used frozen corn, had a bag in the freezer. I just nuked it for a few minutes. If the salad was this good with frozen corn, imagine how wonderful it would be with the fresh stuff. I used mostly cider vinegar, but about 1 tablespoon was balsamic, which gave it such a lovely, sweet/tart taste. I'm going to be making this again for sure, and will make sure to use fresh corn next time! Thanks for posting this recipe!
Great salad. I cut back on one ear of corn & substituted a cucumber to add color/texture. My son thought it was a little sweet, so I may substitute rice wine vinegar for the cider vinegar next time.
Good! Nice fresh side dish when summer grilling. Fresh corn made this dish very sweet. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I steamed my corn and was very good but won't add as much basil. Still good the next day for leftovers.
Two words summarize this dish: The bomb!
I can't even describe how happy my taste buds were when I ate this. Love, love, LOVE it! I omitted the onion cuz I don't like it. I also didn't even measure the vinegar or oil but used them sparingly, and used fresh corn that I grilled in foil - perfect! I had some super sweet orange cherry tomatoes from the farmer's market so I added those, along with some cubed mozarella that I had to use up. The flavors were so delicious that I can't even imagine using anything but fresh corn, fresh basil leaves, etc. Heaven!
SO perfect! I couldn't believe it. It tasted sweet and green and lively. To chiffonade (slice) your basil easily - roll up the leaves like a cigar. I didn't have red onions, so I substituted finely chopped green onions. I wanted to load a picture - but it was gone, baby, gone!
In a pinch, I tried this with frozen corn that I just thawed under a warm tap. My pantry was in such a state I was even out of cider vinegar and subbed red wine vinegar. I also added a dash of cumin for some extra depth of flavor but this was a wonderful dish even with the frozen corn. I will definitely be trying with fresh soon!
Light and flavorful. I loved it. I have not ever used fresh corn in a recipe so this was a first. It was not as cumbersome as I thought it would be - so I am more likely to do it in the future. I have a small pot of basil growing in the kitchen (highly recommend this - easy and delish!) so I just picked some leaves and added the finishing touch, just wonderful! Thanks.
My sister made this salad and my Mom and I were all over her for the recipe after the first couple of bites :) It is SO good. I think it is best when corn is very fresh and in peak season. It is fresh and delicious~ Thank you for posting :)
