Summer Corn Salad

Summer Corn Salad - from lil luna

Summer Corn Salad is a light, flavorful salad filled with corn, tomatoes, feta, basil and cucumber. It's perfect for BBQs and will be a hit at any party!
Recipe type: Salad
Serves: 4
·       3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
·       1 tablespoon lime juice
·       ¼ teaspoon salt
·       1½ cups fresh or frozen corn, thawed
·       1½ cups cherry tomatoes, halved
·       ½ cup finely chopped cucumber
·       2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
·       ⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese
·       2 tablespoons Italian dressing (optional)
1.     Whisk together 2 tablespoons of oil, lime juice, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
2.     Cooking corn in a skillet with remaining oil until tender. (I didn't cook it, just used some leftover ears of corn plus some frozen, that I cook briefly in the microwave)
3.     Pour corn into a large bowl, cool slightly and add tomatoes, cucumber, and basil. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
4.     Right before serving, drizzle with dressing, feta cheese and Italian dressing (if desired).  I squeezed a lime over, a little olive oil, some S&P and a splash of Olive Garden Italian dressing.
