Fresh Corn and Tomato Salad

This is an amazingly fresh tasting summer salad. It is so delicious and easy.

Prep time:
Serving size: 6
Calories per serving: 99

3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
6 ears fresh corn, shucked
2 cups red or orange grape tomatoes, halved
8 ounces mozzarella pearls or fresh mozzarella, cut into small cubes
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves

Whisk together the vinegar, 2 teaspoons salt and some pepper in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream, to make a smooth dressing.

Shear off the corn kernels with a sharp knife over a bowl (you should have about 4 cups). Toss in the tomatoes, mozzarella and scallions. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and toss to coat. Cover and let stand for at least 15 minutes and up to 2 hours. Before serving, tear the basil over the salad and stir.
