Garden Corn and Tomato Salad
Active Work and Total Preparation Time: 25 minutes * Vegetarian
5 ears corn
2 pounds tomatoes, diced
1 1/2 cups sliced green onions
1 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
Lettuce leaves, for serving
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the corn and cook 3 minutes. Remove the corn from the pot and plunge into cold water to cover.
Drain the corn, then slice the kernels from the cobs: Place each cob, stem end down, on the counter and, with a sharp knife, cut down on the cob. You'll have about 4 cups of corn.
Combine the corn, tomatoes, green onions, celery and basil in a large bowl. Add the vinegar and salt. Stir to evenly mix the ingredients.
