Sweet Corn & Tomato Salad With Fresh Cilantro

"This is a delicious and refreshing summer salad. This can be made with canned corn also (I have done this in the off season) with tasty results! Adjust oil and vinegar mixture to your tastes."

    Perfect for using summer fresh produce! I used fresh garsen tomatoes and leftover cooked corn on the cob. I made this as written (but I reduced the oil by about half) and loved it. FRESH cilantro is a must! The flavor is light and refreshing and goes with pretty much anything. Thanx for sharing!

    This is a wonderful recipe! A perfect dish when a quick side is needed for a busy day at home, or to take to a church potluck or summer picnic. It is very flavorful, and will pair well with any meat whether steak or a grilled hot dog... I did not have any red onion, so I subbed green onion in its place. This recipe also adds such vibrant color to ones plate! I will definitely be making this again Mom2Rose :) Thank you so much for sharing! Made and Reviewed for the 61st OZ/NZ Recipe Swap

    We bought all the veg and fresh coriander for this at farm gates the other day. The corn was THE sweetest I've ever cooked and the tomatoes super ripe. We enjoyed this simple salad thanks. I scaled this back to serve 2-3 and there is heaps leftover (3 corn cobs etc)

    Very nice refreshing salad. Had to use frozen corn, as it is not the season for corn on the cob. Otherwise followed recipe according to directions. Can't wait to try this one again this summer.

    Absolutely fantastic! DH raved about this salad, and I quite enjoyed it myself! The sweetness of the plum tomatoes and corn are complimented by the fresh cilantro. The only adjustment I made to this recipe was using cooked, cooled frozen corn instead of fresh/canned and garlic chives instead of red onion (simply because I didn't have one). I served this along with my other swap choices (Recipe #324145, Recipe #305909 and Recipe #296525) for a nice summer dinner. This is definitely a keeper. I plan to take this to a number of summer picnics this year. Thank you for sharing! (Made for Recipe Swap #29 - June 2009)
