Fire Roasted Corn Salad with Feta and Tomatoes

Just heading up to the cabin this afternoon but wanted to post a simple, summer recipe before I go.

I make this salad all summer long and even though summer has yet to hit the West Coast of Canada and we are still wearing jeans with sweaters (although I am defiantly wearing flip flops) this will be nice when we do finally dip our toes into some sunshine and warm weather. The forecast for this weekend looks promising!

I have my family coming up to the island on Saturday and then some friends are due to arrive on Sunday morning and then another girlfriend or two on Sunday night. This easy, do ahead salad will probably make an appearance more than once and even though the refrigeration of tomatoes is sacrilege this is still pretty good straight out of the fridge the next day.

The grilling of the corn really helps the overall flavour here although if you happen to be grill-less you can always just boil the corn instead. When I am at home where I don’t have a BBQ I use my beloved stove top grill pan instead.

This weekend it will be served alongside some ribs one evening, mixed into a cob salad with chicken for lunch one day and may even appear alongside some salmon fillets on another night.

Colourful, flavourful summer in a bowl.

    Hi Julie. I just finished making this for dinner later tonight and can’t stop myself from “tasting” it just to make sure it’s right ;). I bought the tomatoes at our Trout Lake farmers’ market this morning and used a ton of basil from my garden. Another winner. I’m pairing it with an Asian marinated sablefish and Joie Riesling (of course). Thanks again for another great recipe!
