    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!
