Heirloom Cherry Tomato Corn Salad – THM E

Fresh finds at the farmer’s market always include beautiful heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers and fresh sweet corn. Heirloom tomatoes are Non-GMO and are usually organically grown. They are very flavorful and the colors are so much fun! We love this salad with grilled turkey sausage burgers or grilled salmon and a small serving of herb flavored brown rice or quinoa.

It’s very quick and easy to cook the corn on the cob in the Instant Pot. Here’s a great post on Instant Pot Sweet Corn with tips for removing the kernels from the cob.

For a quick E lunch salad,  chop leafy greens such as romaine and spinach together. Add diced red bell pepper, thinly sliced red onion, water packed tuna (drained). Toss these together and then top with a serving of this salad.  Quick, easy and you won’t even need an additional dressing since the Heirloom Cherry Tomato Corn Salad already has a light, sassy FP dressing!
