Tomato Wedge and Raw Corn Salad with Garlic Lemon Vinaigrette

Tomato Wedge Salad

Summer is the perfect time to celebrate fresh produce – especially tomatoes. There are few things better in life than a ripe heirloom tomato fresh out of your garden. This time of year, our garden is packed with red globes peeking between the green leaves of our tomato plants. I love to go to the garden and pick one of the ripest and reddest tomatoes and eat it right then and there – dirt and all. The juice drips down to my elbows and I don’t even care.

Summer gardens are the best.

This simple fresh tomato salad just screams SUMMER! on a plate. I love the crunch of the raw corn paired with the softness of the ripe flavorful tomato. And the bright lemon vinaigrette with a little bite of raw garlic enhances the ripe tomato flavor so perfectly. This is a simple yet stunning summer salad.

The presentation is as stunning as the flavors. All you do is cut out the core of the tomato, place it on a plate and then with a large serrated knife, slice down through the tomato without cutting all the way through. This creates the beautiful fanned-out effect.

Summer perfection on a plate!
