This has been my go-to salad these past few weeks. I even brought it to a pool party and it was all the rave. With fresh tomatoes coming out of my garden I am taking advantage as much as I can as I know my summer tomato days are numbered.

How To Cook Corn

Summer corn is so sweet you don’t have to cook it, but if you wish you can. Try grilling it directly on the flame until the corn chars, about 10 minutes. Or the quickest way to cook it is to microwave it. To cook, microwave 3 minutes with husk on, then let cool and peel.
