Serves 4

8 ears of white corn
2 quarts cherry tomatoes
3 tablespoons high-quality balsamic vinegar
1 medium red onion
1 quart sugar snap peas (optional)
1 handful rough-chopped basil or flat-leaf parsley (optional)
coarse sea salt and pepper to taste

1. Strip raw corn from ears -- just run your chef's knife down the side of each ear about 8 times.
2. Slice cherry tomatoes in quarters and chop the red onion into a large dice.
3. If using the sugar-snap peas cut them in half or thirds so they're bite-sized. Add basil or parsley.
4. Toss all vegetables in a bowl along with the vinegar, salt and pepper.

The ultimate sign of summer? Corn. Preferably on the cob. Perhaps with a sprinkling of cojita cheese and a squirt of lime juice, because nothing beats the delectable messiness of Mexican-style corn. But we'll take corn any which way, really -- as long as it's fresh and sweet and the weather is warm. So, if you too are crazy for corn, we've got just the right recipes, from corn filled salads to silky corn soups, sweet corn desserts, and more. Brought to you from the spirited home cooks' community at FOOD52.
