Simple But Spectacular

I think we're at the point in our relationship where I let my guard down and reveal something intensely personal. That's right, my summer corn salad recipe.

Last summer I haphazardly threw this salad together, tasted it, did a double-take, and then ate it all with a giant serving spoon. Then, I proceeded to make it at least three times a week until summer was over, giant serving spoon at the ready.

And now it's time to share it with you. It's okay, you don't have to say anything. I can see the happy tears. You've given me so much. The least I can give you is an amazing corn salad.

Summer Corn Salad

4 fresh ears of corn on the cob
3 medium tomatoes, diced
1 cup feta or blue cheese, crumbled
1 handful fresh chives, chopped

Cut kernals directly off cob and place in a medium bowl. Add tomatoes, cheese, herbs, and salt and pepper to taste. Eat with a giant serving spoon.

Hint: You can mix this up a zillion different ways. Use any cheese you like and basically any fresh herbs. It's really hard to screw up.

It's simple but spectacular. Kind of like our relationship, don't you think?

Because you've never let your guard down or revealed anything intensely personal. You're making progress.

Love blue cheese!

Omgirl said... sauce? I am a big fan of sauce. But I am also a big fan of feta, corn, and chives, so I will give it a try. I figure, how can I go wrong with the this salad from the maker of the worlds most delicious burritos?

O. M. G. Becky Look at Her Butt. HOLY FRIKKIN SCHNEIKIES!! What more can I say than that...?!?! I saw this recipe back when you posted it, but hadn't made it- then yesterday a dear neighbor brought over a bag of fresh tomatoes from the garden and I got the light bulb above my head. Me and my mom are totally freaking out, with giant serving spoons.

(I did end up using canned corn to save a few minutes...)

holy crap! thanks a gajillion ;)
