Corn Salad

I made this super simple corn salad for this summer season. The simplicity of it allows the corn’s sweetness to really shine through. It’s perfect to keep on hand for an easy lunch, light dinner or side, but I think it’s especially great for cookouts. People really love the flavors and it is a dish that almost everyone can eat.
The corn could be sweet, succulent, totally juicy and delicious.

  • Boiled corn – 2 cups
  • Onions finely chopped -1/2 cup
  • Tomatoes( cube shaped)-1 cup
  • Salt – to taste
  • Sugar –pinch
  • Freshly ground pepper powder -1 tsp
  • Basil leaves – 1 cup
  • Extra virgin olive oil -2 tbsp
  • Apple cider vinegar -2 tbsp


Boil the corn either in the pressure cooker or in an open pan.
 In a glass bowl whisk together vinegar, sugar, the 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and black pepper until sugar is dissolved. Let dressing stand while preparing salad.

Take a large bowl, toss corn and remaining ingredients except salt and basil leaves. 
Now transfer this salad to a serving bowl with a tsp of salt followed by the prepared dressing. 
Cut the basil leaves and mix gently. Adjust with salt and pepper and serve this yummy corn salad immediately.
