Author Notes

First made this while on vacation on the Jersey Shore. There is really nothing better than fresh Jersey corn (try it uncooked for a sweet and surprising crunch) and ripe heirloom tomatoes. Toss in fresh cooked crab or shrimp and serve with crusty bread to make it a complete meal! —AnnaFromBoston
