Yellow, red, and green- just the colors of this Corn, Tomato and Basil Salad make you want to dive in and eat it.  In the Spring, you can scrape the kernels off fresh ears of corn; but in the Winter, you can defrost bags of corn and the results will still be delicious. Adding multi-colored heirloom pear and cherry tomatoes to the corn with fresh basil makes it a delicious salad on its own; but also a great addition to chicken or turkey schnitzel – or even fried fish or tofu!
