Tomato Bounty – – – Corn and Tomato Salad

15 Jul

Look at all these tomatoes!!!!!

On Saturday morning after returning home from the Farmers Market, I saw an email from my favorite farmers down the road from me – Skippack Creek Farm. I get all of my tomatoes from them – and all of my herbs and vegetable plants from them in the beginning of the season. They are super nice and friendly and they run an organic farm. I love their produce – but I also love chatting with them and seeing them either at local farmers markets or their own farm stand!

Look at these 2 mutants

As I was saying, I got an email from my friends saying that since I was one of their fave customers and they liked me so much, they wanted to give me a free bag of tomatoes!!! Um, YES PLEASE! Their tomatoes taste like bites of juicy heaven. I jumped on it. When I saw how much they were giving me, my mind started to wander thinking “what can i make? what can i make?”

Fresh, simple ingredients

I settled on meaty tomato sauce (which I’ve never made before, and I totally “wung” it without a recipe!) and a fresh Tomato Corn Salad. This corn salad is my mom’s recipe. She made it a couple times earlier in the season and we INHALED it at dinner!

Want to stick my face in there

This salad is so fresh and delicious and SIMPLE SIMPLE SIMPLE! It’s just a couple ingredients – and it’s completely customizable! You want to add beans? Add beans. You want to omit the jalapeno? Go for it. (In fact, my mom’s recipe does not include jalapeno – I added that)

Up Close and Vegetable

The best is if you used sweet corn, you will think there is sugar in this recipe. But there’s not! The sweet corn and the acids together give off a sweet taste that makes you want more!

Cant wait to eat this!
