There is just so much fresh produce to be had right now. My kitchen counter is just brimming with tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchinis right now. We are having salads just about every night of the week. So I thought I would share a delicious grilled corn and tomato salad with you.

This can be made any time of the year, using frozen sweet corn and store bought tomatoes, but it is especially delicious this time of year when the corn is fresh and the tomatoes are vine ripe!

Recipe - Grilled Corn and Tomato Salad

This healthy and colorful side dish pairs well with grilled meats and poultry, but you can serve it with just about any main course you like.
