Fresh farmer’s market salad with corn, tomatoes and basil
2 cups corn cut off the cob, or frozen (not cooked)
2 cups chopped tomatoes
1/3 to 1/2 cup minced sweet onion, like Noonday or Vidalia
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper (I used sweet orange bell pepper)
1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese. If you prefer, use another cheese like blue, feta, or Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper, or to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil (or a teaspoon of dried basil) or your favorite herb, like oregano or parsley
1/4 cup ranch salad dressing
Combine all ingredients except ranch dressing in a salad bowl. Toss to combine, then drizzle with the dressing, and toss again. Serve chilled. Enjoy!
