Fresh From Your Garden Salad

We are getting the first of our locally grown corn.  My husband loves corn and last year, I hardly made any.  So, I promised him that this year I will make him as much corn as possible and make it a lot of different ways.
For this recipe, I used 6 ears of corn. Cut it off the cob scraping the cob to get the most corn juice from it.

Mix 1/3 C. of fresh lemon and lime juice together with 1/3 C. of oil, some diced garlic, 1 tablespoon of honey, S&P, and diced shallot.  You can use red onion, vidalia onion or green onion instead of the shallot.

Slice up some of your freshly picked tomatoes.  As much as I am not a huge fan of summer, I sure like picking fresh tomatoes.

Dice up some fresh basil and add it to the corn. Tarragon would be good in this salad too.

You can use any cheese of your choice.  I used some cubed fresh mozzarella and a sprinkling of feta.

Toss it all together with the dressing.  I let this sit for a while, tossing it occasionally, to let the flavors combine.  Stay tuned for many more corn recipes.
