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!)

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.
