Cherry Tomato Salad Recipe
If there was a best time of year to make this corn salad, now is it! My garden is going crazy with cherry tomatoes and there is lots of fresh corn in the grocery stores and farmer’s market. This salad can also be made with frozen corn and store bought cherry tomatoes any time of year but fresh is always best, so make this now!

How to Make Cherry Tomato Corn Salad

This salad is almost too pretty to eat, but eat it anyway! My husband especially liked the addition of the cucumber into the salad and the little bit of jalapeno gives you a nice surprise once in a while. If you don’t want the little bit of heat, just leave the pepper out.
How to Store Corn Salad
Keep the salad refrigerated until ready to serve. The salad will last for a couple of days.
So take advantage of fresh corn and cherry tomato season and make this salad – it’s perfect for the upcoming holiday weekend and any cookouts or potlucks you might be attending.
