Love this salad. I served it with burgers. The basil and corn combination adds sweetness and the tangy vinaigrette compliments it nicely. Very tasty!

I really enjoyed this simple salad. The grilled tomato vinaigrette is to die for!! The sweetness of the corn played off of the vinaigrette very well. I will be adding this to my list of summer staples!
