Jazzy Summer Salad

This summer salad has some poppin' sweet crunch and will make your taste-buds go ZING-ZIP-POW!  Holy corn-tomato combo Batman, we have lift-off!  The subtly-sweet corn accompanied by a hint of lemon and some fresh onion makes this a wonderfully refreshing treat in the woeful summer heat.
-4 ears corn, kernels cut off
-1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
-1/2 small onion, minced
-salt and pepper
-olive oil
-juice of 1 lemon

->Combine corn, tomatoes, and onion.  Add a splash of olive oil and the lemon juice and then season to taste.  You could also blanch the corn or saute your onions, but we like them fresh from the garden for this dish.  Enjoy as a side to your favorite summer meal!

*TIP:  Make it even jazzier by adding some of your favorite chopped herbs, like cilantro, sweet basil, or lemon basil.  *~
