Summer Vegetable Salad with Fresh Basil and Balsamic Drizzle

This is my new go-to salad for a quick and delicious side dish.  In fact, if your weekend plans include a potluck, grill out or picnic, you must try this salad.

The best part of this crisp and fresh salad is that it takes less than 10 minutes to make.  Really.

A mere 10 minutes until you're able to enjoy this:

Summer Vegetable Salad with Fresh Basil and Balsamic Drizzle

2 cups fresh corn (about 4 ears of corn), uncooked
1 medium zucchini, diced
2-3 roma tomatoes, deseeded and diced
2 tablespoons fresh basil, sliced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze

In a medium bowl, combine the corn, zucchini, tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper and olive oil.  Toss well to combine.

Serve and drizzle with a touch of balsamic.

Serves 4, but can easily be doubled for a larger group.

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
