MY REVIEW

I used fresh corn and it's a very good summer salad, but next time I will make extra dressing as I found it a little bland.

Love this recipe which I first made for a family on our church's "care calendar." It looked and tasted so good that I was hard pressed to give it away. I came home and made another batch, substituting cumin for the basil and adding a touch of garlic powder. Both ways, it's an excellent change from greens based salads. Though titled "Summer Corn Salad," it will be an all year salad for us.

This was absolutely fabulous! Definitely use fresh corn and basil as it makes this salad incredibly fresh tasting. I will be making this salad over and over again during corn season - by far the best corn salad I have ever tried.
