The summer has completely gotten away from me! We have had birthdays, weddings, visits from family and tons of other summer fun. Needless to say, I have not been very good at updating the blog during the month of July, but now that it is August, I no longer have any excuses :)
I made this delicious salad as part of Franny's 2nd Birthday celebration. The ingredients, are in my opinion, the best of summer's bounty (tomatoes and corn) and the combination of the two, not only give you a pretty plate, but a delicious mouthful.
Brush the corn all over with olive oil. Grill the corn covered at medium-high turning occasionally until all sides are charred and deeply blistered in places, 6-10 minutes. Cut the kernels off the cobs while still warm, and put the kernels in a large bowl. Add tomatoes and scallions. Toss with half of the vinaigrette and add more to taste. This may be served warm or at room temperature.
* Add grilled chorizio and shrimp skewers on top
