Summer Corn Salad

Need a quick, easy, but satisfying side for your summer dinner? Look no further than this corn salad. The sweet corn is perfect with red onions, basil, and ripe cherry tomatoes! Summer is the perfect time to make this since all of the main ingredients are in season, RIGHT NOW!

It is great served immediately but the flavors intensify if left in the fridge overnight. This side is great for lunch or along side hearty meal. My mom and I enjoyed it with a simple green salad and tri tip we picked up from the market. Every Sunday the local market near my mom's house does a tri tip barbecue outside and it is so easy and tasty! I highly recommend seeking something like that out because it makes for a stress free Sunday evening.

The salad alone is gluten free and vegan so it is perfect for potlucks or dinners with certain friends! (Scaling up the recipe is probably necessary though!)
