Tomato Corn Salad with lime Dressing

A simple refreshing summer salad!


For the Salad

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 fresh or frozen corn kernels 
2 cups halved cherry or grape tomatoes
2 tablespoons chopped, fresh cilantro
crumbled feta cheese

For the dressing

1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 garlic cloves, minced 


In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the corn, and heat until soft (3-5 minutes). Cool corn slightly and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil and minced garlic cloves. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, cilantro, cheese and corn. Toss the salad with the dressing, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm or cold. Enjoy - Alex
