Alright...I know everybody says their dish is amazing, but no, really.....this salad is AMAZING!! LOL...For real! All fresh ingredients make this an unexpected hit! The fresh lemon juice will give a bright and refreshing ting to your palette! You must try this with a pan-seared or grilled steak or chicken. It is also a nice touch with an Asian BBQ salmon....or any BBQ for that matter!!! Enjoy, yawl! :))

Ingredients

5 c
sweet white/yellow corn kernels (8 cobs)
2 1/2 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp
kosher salt
2 1/2 Tbsp
sugar
1/4 tsp
ground black pepper
4 Tbsp
extra-virgin olive oil
1 pt
cherry tomatoes, halved (use a little less if you like)
1/2 c
diced red onion
1/4 c
fresh basil, thinly sliced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make an ice-water bath by filling a large bowl halfway with water and ice and put it to the side.
2
Bring a large pot of salted water (about 2 tablespoons) to a boil over high heat.
3
Cut kernels from the cob, add to boiling water and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and put cooked corn in a ziploc bag and submerge in your ice water bath to stop the cooking process (you may need to use a can to hold the bag underneath the water bath), about 10 minutes. Be sure to let all the air out of the ziploc bag before closing.
4
Combine the lemon juice, salt, sugar and pepper in a large, nonreactive bowl. While continuously whisking, add the olive oil in a slow stream until nicely mixed.
5
Add the remaining ingredients and the cooled corn and toss until well coated. Serve cold or at room temperature.
