The entire first half of the summer I'd been waiting for summer to begin. Am I the only one who felt... constantly poised? Anyway, good thing I snapped out of it, otherwise my favorite summer produce would have passed me by. I really love this bright, refreshing salad. It has just the right amount of fresh herbiness and sweetness (with a little kick).
Use your favorite herbs - chives, parsley, dill - to play with the flavors you like.
Summer Corn and Heirloom Tomato Salad
4 ears of corn
4 sprigs each of mint, cilantro, lemon balm (or green herbs of your choice), roughly chopped
3 - 4 handfuls of small heirloom tomatoes (grape, cherry) , halved
3 T olive oil
1 T of Sweet Weeger Spice
juice of 1 lime
sea salt to taste
Cut corn off the cob by holding ear vertically in a roasting pan and slicing downward.
Heat half of the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high flame and saute corn with a large pinch of salt for 3 minutes. Set aside in mixing bowl along with tomatoes.
In a separate bowl, whisk lime juice, remaining olive oil and Sweet Weeger spice.
Pour dressing over corn and tomatoes. Fold in chopped herbs.
Add salt and more Sweet Weeger to taste.
