I love the color and textures in this salad. Serve it on the side with a grilled hamburger or steak or make it a meal with whole grain bread.

3 ears fresh corn or 3 cups canned corn 1-1/2 cups fresh Roma tomato, diced 1 green or red pepper, diced 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil 1/2 cup chopped parsley 4 green onions, diced

Dressing 3 tablespoon red wine vinegar 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard 1/4 teaspoon cumin salt and pepper to taste

Cook fresh corn in microwave or in boiling water. Cut corn off the cob.

In a large bowl, combine corn, tomatoes, pepper, basil, parsley, and green onions.

In a small food processor, combine dressing ingredients. Add to corn mixture and stir to blend well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve room temperature or chilled.
