Sweet Corn and Tomato Salad

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup fresh basil
  • pinch of oregano
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • splash of balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 ounces soft goat cheese, chilled and crumbled, optional
Cooking Directions
  1. Bring large pot of water to a boil over medium high heat. Add corn and boil for 5 minutes. Drain and cool.
  2. Chop tomatoes in quarters, squeeze out juice and seeds. Chop the seeded tomato quarters into a rough dice, pat with paper towels to remove moisture.
  3. When corn has cooled, stand each ear up in a wide shallow dish and cut the kernels off with a chefs knife. Toss corn with tomatoes.
  4. Finely mince basil, toss with tomatoes and corn along with olive oil, salt, pepper, vinegar, and cheese if using. Toss gently.
