Summer Recipe Series - Living Savvy

I recently shared my addiction to spray paint over on Tiffany's blog Living Savvy. She has a fun series called Spray Painters Anonymous...and I know several of you could also be members!

Today, Tiffany shares her recipe for a corn salad I will be sure to try this summer...


Hello, I am Tiffany from Living Savvy and I am so excited Laura asked me to share my favorite Summer recipe for her series.  I love summer cooking, and think that all food should be kept light and fresh. My recipe for my Summer Corn Salad takes all of the freshest in season ingredients to make a super light and satisfying summer side dish.

Summer Corn Salad
Serves 8-10
- 8-10 ears of corn on the cob 
- 1 pint of grape/cherry tomatoes {halved}
- 1 large red onion {diced}
- bunch of basil {chiffon} 
- apple cider vinegar
-olive oil
- S & P to taste
Shuck corn, trim ends and boil in water for 10 minutes.  You could also place on the grill with brushed with olive oil for a more smoky flavor.

Meanwhile, sliced tomatoes in half, chop onion, and basil.

To easily cut the corn off the cob, place a smaller bowl upside down in a bigger bowl.  Place corn on the bowl and cut off the kernels.

Add corn to cut veggies.  Add apple cider vinegar {I would say about 1/4-1/2 cup, depending on how tangy you like it} olive oil to coat and salt and pepper to taste.  Mix well.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Thank you so much for having me!  Please come visit me at Living Savvy where I share some more recipes, Savvy DIY's, and client projects!
Happy Summer!
