"Love the flavor with the fresh basil and I bet it will be even better with fresh from the garden tomatoes. Good flavor even after refrigerating all night, but the tomatoes were not as firm."

"I used fresh tomatoes from my garden and really liked the flavor of the corn and tomatoes together. I didn't have fresh basil so I used dried basil. I think it will be better with the fresh basil next time! So quick and easy!"
