Fresh Corn Salad with Tomatoes

Fresh corn cut off the cob, fresh crisp tomatoes, mint & feta! This corn salad is delicious with just olive oil & salt & pepper to dress it. A perfect accompaniment to anything really. 

I served this salad as part of a dinner buffet with the Arugula Salad with Grilled Halloumi & a grilled vegetable torte. All 3 recipes from NYT Cooking! One of my favourite sites to get ideas & recipes from.

The rest of the menu was Blackened Fish Sandwich – Tasting Table  & some potato chips!  I used pre-made Pollack fish burgers from Costco. We really like these fish burgers…we also get the frozen salmon burgers from Costco as well.

The complete menu was

Mango Tequila Guacamole & Strawberry, Tequila & Aperol Slushy Drink!!

Blacken fish burgers served with lettuce, sliced tomatoes, guacamole & the aoli from the menu & buns,

Here is the recipe for the Corn Salad from NYT Cooking Mark Bittman


3 cups of corn from 6 ears of corn

a handful of grape tomatoes or 1 large ripe tomato

1 cup feta cheese, crumbled

3 tbsp olive oil

1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped

salt & pepper


  1. Boil the corn & let it cool
  2. Using a knife cut the kernels off the cobs..I do this over a large bowl so that all the pieces of corn just fall into the bowl & not all over the counter!!
  3. Cut the grape tomatoes into half or quarters, depending upon your preference, if using a large tomato, dice it. Add the tomatoes to the corn kernels
  4. Add the crumbled feta to the bowl
  5. Drizzle some olive oil on & mix the ingredients together
  6. Add the mint leaves. Toss the mint into the other
  7. Seaaon with salt & pepper

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
