Author Notes

One summer we were having a family BBQ and I had a lot of extra local Jersey corn on the cob, tomatoes and peppers & thought it would make an interesting salad. This recipe was actually inspired by an Israeli salad of chopped tomatoes and cucumbers.This corn salad is so colorful, easy to make and very refreshing. —Joy Betesh

Made this salad over the weekend and it was a huge hit. People couldn't stop raving about it. It paired well the carnitas I served either as a garnish or on the side. Thanks so much for sharing. Will definitely be making this salad again.
