This recipe is adapted from a recipe in Gourmet July, 2009. It is absolutely delicious and hard to stop eating. The original recipe calls for 2 Tb of oil for the dressing and 2 Tb of butter for sauteeing the scallions and corn. It also calls for 3/4 tsp of salt for the dressing. All this is not necessary as well as not healthful. The sweetness of the corn and tomatoes with a pinch of salt speak for themselves. —ellenl

  • 1 1/4 pounds tomatoes (heirloom) in bite-sized chunks
