No recipe, as such, is necessary for this dish. My summer days are lovely and long, so I’ve committed to making up a picnic dinner to take to our community garden once a week. This past week the night was coming and rainy clouds threatened, so we took our party to the roof in case we had to make a mad dash. Here’s one of the “throw-together and throw downs” that I made for my sweetie.
Serves two, generously
1 ripe heirloom or other tasty red tomato (sans most seeds, as they are hard on the digestion)
2 ears of corn, raw
Chop the tomato. Toss with kernels removed from ears of corn. Chiffonade some basil (be generous – when all is said and done, you should clearly smell the basil over the tomato and corn – I used several small handfuls). Add salt and pepper, to taste.
