Corn, Tomato and Onion Summer Salad

I was in Texas with my Baylor friends this past weekend.  We had an amazing time hanging out at the lake and just enjoying everyone and their families.

We never have a shortage of food with this crowd.  My friend Lya is a great cook.  She always has a new favorite recipe!  She made this fresh, yummy summer salad and we all loved it.  She doubled it for our crowd of 22 and we had leftovers for our second night of good eating!

I don't love bleu cheese so I would probably make it with feta cheese or Cotija cheese.  She was sweet and made one bowl with bleu cheese and one without.  Everyone loved both!  The bleu cheese fans went on an on!




Corn, Tomato and Onion Salad

Salad:

6 ears of roasted corn (approx 4 1/2 cups corn- I used two 16 oz Traders Joes frozen roasted corn)
1 sweet onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
8 oz crumbled bleu cheese, added just before serving ( or feta or Cotija cheese)

Dressing:

1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 tsp honey
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Mix the dressing together, and set aside.  Toss with salad items and add cheese just before serving.
