Tomato Corn Summer Salad

I know, I know. It’s after Labor Day. So it’s not summertime any more. I know some of you are excited to move in to Fall and start baking with apples and pumpkin (I’m looking at you Rachel!)

Tomato Corn Summer Salad

But I’m digging in my heels. I think I do this every year. I resist saying good bye to summertime even though Fall is my favorite season… So while the corn and tomatoes are still abundant and flavorful, I’m going to keep using them. If you want apple and pumpkin and other fall favorites, you’re just going to have to wait…

Tomato Corn Summer Salad

This summer salad was thrown together one night when I was trying to clean out our veggie drawer in the fridge. We get our CSA box on Wednesday, so Tuesday night’s dinner usually has a lot of veggies in it.

    Next time I come over, I insist we either have these delicious looking Gyros or go to the Turkish restaurant you talked about.

    Can’t wait for you to post the recipe – I am putting it on my menu for next week. 😀

    I used to make tzatziki sauce too -until my grocery store started selling it for .99 cents for a 16 ounce container – so cheap!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    I love me a traditional, good, lamb gyro- but these look delicious! I might have to break out of my comfort zone 🙂

    Can the pita bread dough be made in advance and kept in the fridge overnight? I want to make these tomorrow for dinner but will not have time for the 90 minute and then 20 minute rise times. Any advice would be great. Thanks!

    Manne – sounds like a plan

    Lauren – It’s called Brookline Family Restaurant and it’s on Washington St in Brookline Village. Definitely check it out if you’re in the area.

    Sheena – I’m not sure about freezing the pita bread dough. I’m sure it would be fine as other bread doughs can be frozen and used later. Let me know how it goes if you try it!
