Corn, Tomato, Feta and Basil Salad

Yesterday, I found this recipe on Pinterest, and since I worked up the nerve to pinch the basil I grew from seed, I thought I’d go ahead and whip some up.  It’s really easy, too.

It’s a combination of fresh corn on the cob, feta cheese, cherry tomaters and basil!  I’m sure you never would have guessed that though.  : )

This turned out really good. I’m not very fond of ‘maters, but the combination of the other ingredients with them made this dish extremely tasty with a slightly sweet flavor.

This is a great side dish, but could also be a snack with some pita chips. Speaking of pita chips, these are my favorite!

I find these at HEB. The roasted red pepper hummus is found at Wal-mart in the deli section. The best hummus ever and really good with these pita chips.  This isn’t paid advertising, just me letting you know what I enjoy snacking on!

Enjoy your Saturday!
