    Wow!! I just made this delicious salad with tomatoes and fresh corn-on-the-cob that I got from my wonderful neighbor. I followed the recipe exactly except that I did not have fresh basil ... I used about 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning instead. This salad is light and refreshing and has a beautiful fresh taste. The only thing I may change when I make it again is maybe add a little more lime juice. Perfect light and tasty salad for those summer picnics ... and you don't have to worry about any heavy salad dressing spoiling ....
