In the height of summer, you won't find a better side dish for ribs than this deceptively simple combination of peak-season produce. Try bringing it to a party, too.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a large pot of boiling water, cook corn until warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes. Rinse with cold water until cool.

Step 2

Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, onion, avocado, and basil in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients to make the vinaigrette, whisking until blended.

Step 3

Cut corn kernels off cobs and add to salad, then pour in vinaigrette and toss gently to combine.

Step 4

I love this salad. It is super easy and the vinaigrette is perfect. Sometimes I add black beans and make it a meal. Fresh, light and tasty.

Very tasty, light, easy to make salad. Perfect for warm summer evenings or taking to a friend's barbeque. The proportions of the ingredients are close to just right, although, I would use another half of an avocado next time.

I LOVE this! I would recommend using slightly less vinaigrette. To me, it was a little wet at first. I also think it's even better the second day. From now on, I'll make this ahead and let it sit in the fridge for several hours before digging in. Yum, yum, YUM!

This is very yummy and something a little different than the usual red potato salad I always bring to a barbecue.

This is a keeper. Something different other than potato, pasta or a green salad for summer. I kept the recipe as is but it's certainly flexible enough to allow for additional or modified ingredients. Loved it!
