Corn-Off-The-Cob Salad

Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
6 ears of corn, boiled and cooled, kernels cut from cob (to boil corn, see note below)
1/2 red onion, medium chop
1 medium ripe tomato, chopped
cup of basil, chopped

Preparation

1
Boiling corn: To keep the sweet, fresh flavor of corn, keep cooking to a minimum. Once the corn is shucked, place it in a pan of cold water. Turn the heat up to medium high. As soon as the water begins to boil, turn off the heat and remove the corn from the water.
2
Warm olive oil in a skillet. Add onions and sauté until they are just soft.
3
Add tomato and sauté until soft.
4
Add corn and basil to the pan. Toss the ingredients together until they are well mixed and the corn is warmed through.
5
Add salt and pepper to taste.
6
This can be made the night before and stored in the refrigerator over night.
