Multi-Colored Tomatoes, Beans, Corn, Basil Salad
This perfect summer salad is so easy to prepare! Simply combining the basic ingredients with a garlic dressing provides an attractive well-flavored dish. It also serves as a lovely pot luck offering on any type of gathering table.
While I forgot to photograph the two-pound ensemble of multi-colored cherry tomatoes from Costco before preparing this salad on two occasions, I alternatively lifted a former cherry tomato photo as an example sans the little round pale green and deep purplish colored tomatoes currently sold within the mixed selection.
The corn cut off the cob doesn’t require any cooking. The fresh basil from the garden is the only herb needed as the finishing touch in pulling together the seamlessly packed flavors.
Fresh tomatoes with garlic and mozzarella are always a hit served in a variety of ways, especially during the summer months. The few extra ingredients add in some healthy components with a little extra pizzaz and visual pop.
The garlic dressing is easily whipped up using a couple cloves of finely chopped garlic combined with fresh lemon juice vinegar and olive oil.
If you are tired and worn out from masks and the overall effects of Coronavirus, and whatever your current situation in this challenging season, my little offering for your day is that you can put together the recipe for this cheery salad in less than a half-hour, a little goodie sure to perk up your spirits and those loved ones that you cook for.
Sending blessings and well wishes your way.
